Following a sold-out performance, Netflix sues the makers of The Unofficial Bridgerton Musical

Netflix claims in a lawsuit received by Deadline that Barlow and Bear’s video “stretches ‘fan fiction’ far beyond its breaking point” and is a “blatant violation of intellectual property rights.” Despite appreciating Barlow and Bear’s work, Netflix alleges it warned them twice that Bridgerton-inspired songs “were not approved.”

Netflix claims that the live Unofficial Bridgerton concert was also not allowed by the corporation and that Barlow and Bear “refused” to negotiate a license that would enable them to freely distribute their album and organize live performances.
