Judge: 1963 Royalties Agreement Between ‘Funny Girl’ Lyricist, Producer Cannot Be Canceled Under Copyright Law
“I agree with the Hymans. Although Merrill may terminate her late husband’s licensing deals, she has no right to cancel his royalty deals,” Judge Jeffrey Alker Meyer wrote in the opinion. “And Bob Merrill’s agreement with Hyman was only a royalty deal. I will therefore deny Merrill’s motion for summary judgment and grant summary judgment to the Hymans.”
