A development in the case has come about concerning the status of some letters between Summy-Birchard, alleged rights holder for the song in the late 70's, and ASCAP. The letters in question supposedly "detail the history and status of the copyrights." and Warner is claiming these are protected under attorney-client privilege. The judge is taking arguments into consideration from both sides regarding the status of these letters originating from the no longer existing law firm but it is reported that he is "leaning towards granting Warner's request that it be ruled protected.".
