However, the representatives Lityagina say that Suhankina currently touring under the name “Mirage” and takes the hits, written by Lithium illegally.
“Andrew never signed any contracts with Shankini, – says the lawyer of the publishing house JAM Dmitry Testes. – The use of songs executed only on a verbal agreement with Lithium. Now the situation has changed, Andrew is configured to cooperate with well-documented contributions to him as an author and owner of the trade mark “Mirage”. That is, it does not aim to remove her from the scene. Just to put relations in the legal field. We tried to arrange talks with Margaret through her concert Directors, but they are our offer refused. If Suhankina will continue its activities under this brand without any legal grounds, we will be forced to go to court in connection with gross violations of copyright, the penalty for which provides for a fine from 10 000 to 5 000 000 rubles. Although, again, we would like to solve all of the world.”
As it turned out, Margaret, who is currently on tour, do not know such drastic changes.
