The Kentucky Derby Festival and local artist Andre Wilson have reached an agreement in the copyright lawsuit within the plan of this 2018 Derby Festival jacket, the organization announced Friday.
The Kentucky Derby Festival did not disclose the dollar amount of the lawsuit settlement or which party was granted the copyright to the coat or the Pegasus Pin, a miniature version of the blazer, that was released for its 2019 Derby.
“Kentucky Derby Festival appreciates the work that Andre Wilson did to help produce the 2018 KDF Jacket. Watch Kentucky derby, Both parties are happy that the dispute is resolved and wish each other well,” the festival said in the announcement.
The Kentucky Derby Festival filed the suit in April asking a judge to confirm it has the copyright to the Pegasus Pin, after being faced with a danger of a copyright lawsuit by Wilson.
KDF claimed that Louisville stylist and designer Wilson demanded royalties from sales of their pins, which can be one of the primary funding sources for the festival.
“We’re equally shocked and saddened the Kentucky Derby Festival and one of its primary sources of sponsorship funding has been threatened with litigation,” the festival stated in an April announcement.
KDF stated Wilson was paid $4,500 for his job on the 2018 jacket, but Wilson’s criticism was that he was not informed the design could be utilized for its 2019 pins.
“It increased my eyebrows, and I began to think,’Hey, wait a minute. Watch Kentucky derby, They have only monetized it,'” Wilson told The Courier Journal in April.
The lawsuit asked a federal judge to rule that the festival retains the copyright to both the jacket and the snare and also to allow the company to keep on promoting the pins and using its Pegasus logo.
