Meat Loaf claims ‘Bat Out of Hell’ rights
LOS ANGELES – Someone else might have written the “Bat Out of Hell” song, but Meat Loaf claims he should be the only one to use the phrase in connection with music.
In a federal lawsuit dated May 26, the rocker, whose name is listed in the action as Michael Aday, said the expression had been publicly associated with him since the 1977 release of his “Bat Out of Hell” album.
The lawsuit claims defendant Jim Steinman, who wrote the original song of the same name, wrongly claims ownership of the phrase.
The album and its 1993 follow-up, “Bat Out of Hell II,” sold 48 million copies worldwide, according to the lawsuit.
The lawsuit seeks damages of more than $50 million.
Steinman and co-defendant David Sonenberg, listed in the action as having been Meat Loaf’s manager, have been trying to disrupt the October release of the third “Bat Out of Hell” album by telling the singer’s distributors that Aday had no right to use the phrase, according to the lawsuit.
“This contention is blackmail and a holdup,” said the complaint, which claimed Steinman and Sonenberg have infringed Aday’s trademark rights in the phrase and are interfering with distribution contracts.
Steinman wrote and produced the second album, and would have produced the third, but he and Aday had a falling out, according the lawsuit.
Attempts to reach Steinman and Sonenberg for comment after business hours Monday were unsuccessful.
