William R. Scherer III Lead Counsel Representing Preeminent Entertainment Attorney in an Action Against Atlantic Recording Corporation

William R. Scherer III was lead counsel representing preeminent entertainment attorney Stevens H. Weiss in an action against Atlantic Recording Corporation.   The case concerned Weiss’ entitlement to royalties on sales of Led Zeppelin releases, How the West Was Won and Led Zeppelin DVD and involved the interpretation of what was included as “catalogue” in Weiss’ agreement with Atlantic which stemmed from Weiss’ prior representation of the band during the late 60’s through the early 80’s.   Mr. Scherer was able to draw upon his knowledge and experience in music recording and performance during cross examination of recording engineer Eddie Kramer and Led Zeppelin band member Jimmy Page in depositions.   ​The case was resolved through a confidential settlement.
