Dispute leads Tower to halt Fisher disc sales

Tower Records has agreed to temporarily stop selling “On Stage With Eddie Fisher” after the singer’s attorney claimed the compact discs were illegally recorded.

Fisher’s attorney on Thursday filed a $ 10 million lawsuit in San Francisco Superior Court against Tower, the manufacturers and distributors of the disc.

“We’re trying to send a message to these pirates that they could be hit hard, ” said Fisher’s attorney Arnold Laub.

The suit charges the recording company Encore, whose location and owner were unclear, with commercial appropriation, invasion of privacy and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

Tower will discontinue sales within five working days after Fisher posts a $ 5,000 bond to cover expenses in case authorities prove the recording is legal, said Vince Chiarello, who represents Tower.

The music retailer has not yet determined whether the recording was unauthorized, but said vendors unconditionally warrant that all merchandise is legal.

Chiarello estimated that Tower had purchased no more than 50 copies of the discs.

Tower received the disc from two distributors, City Hall Records and Records Limited Inc. of L.A., Laub said.
