Over the past few years Bart Steele has waged a campaign against Bon Jovi, the Red Sox, and others regarding purported copyright infringement of Steele’s song “Man I Really Love This Team,” a “country-rock Boston Red Sox and baseball-themed musical work.” Recently his campaign has accused the other side (and its lawyers) of falsifying copyright management information and altering evidence.
This most recent complaint reasserts the claims of copyright infringement against the main team song. Perhaps in anticipation of an unfavorable result in a pending appeal.
