A popular Russian weekly newspaper said Monday it will respond to a U.S. court's decision to freeze its bank accounts in North America only after studying the case closely
A popular Russian weekly newspaper said Monday it will respond to a U.S. court's decision to freeze its bank accounts in North America only after studying the case closely. "We cannot take any action until the factual side of the case becomes known [to us]," said Andrei Mironov, the deputy head of Argumenty i Fakty (AiF) for legal issues. The New York Court of Appeals ruled that the U.S. bank accounts and trademarks of AiF and another Russian newspaper, Komsomolskaya Pravda, be suspended over alleged failure to pay a lawyer who defended their interests in a piracy case. Mironov said the U.S. courts had not yet notified AiF of the decision and that he expected some clarification by Monday night. New York-based Julian Lowenfeld sued the papers seven years ago after they allegedly failed to pay him $434,000 in fees for winning a case against North American Russian-language weekly Kurier, which they accused of copyright violations. If AiF and Komsomolskaya Pravda fail to appeal the ruling by April 12, Lowenfeld will be entitled to use their trademarks and distribution proceeds in the U.S. until the sum due - now standing at $682,000 including interest - is paid to him in full.
