ELECTRO-HARMONIX Won Copyright Case Against MOORER

Music Radar reports that Electro-Harmonix has won a court case against Chinese effects company Mooer for infringement of their copyrighted software.

The lawsuit revolved around Mooer’s Mooergan and Tender Octaver pedals, which featured exact copies of the software used in EHX’s C9 Organ Machine and Micro POG.

When cloning the devices, Mooer has reportedly even copied the Electro-Harmonix copyright notice found in the software for the C9 and Micro POG, alerting the company to the infringement.

EHX president Mike Matthews stated:

“Electro-Harmonix has successfully won battles with labor racketeers in the U.S.A. and ruthless mobsters in Russia.

“After almost two years of fighting, the Chinese courts have awarded Electro-Harmonix a nearly six-figure judgment. Our victory is now complete and these pirates have walked the plank!”
