Final Battle Over Hendrix Material

The estate of Jimi Hendrix has initiated legal action against a company that claims it has the legal right to release concert recordings of the guitar master at London's Royal Albert Hall in 1969.  The suit is the latest salvo in a battle over rights to the material that has gone on for decades, according to TMZ.  The Hendrix estate reportedly contends that the individuals that recorded the performances only had authorization to use them in a movie - a film that was never made.  The suit seeks a final determination that the Hendrix estate is the rightful owner of the concert recordings and up to $2 million dollars to compensate it for the costs of having to pursue the rights to the material.
