Mark Gregory , head of Martin LLP's Litigation Group, has filed an action in federal court in New York seeking to vigorously pursue justice against PepsiCo Inc. on behalf of client Betty, Inc., an advertising agency located in Trumbull, CT.  The lawsuit asserts that Pepsi's 2016 Super Bowl halftime ad, "Joy of Dance," was based on the ideas that Betty, Inc. pitched to Pepsi back in early November.  Betty did not enter into a statement of work with Pepsi nor was it compensated for the use of its concept "All Kinds/Living Jukebox."  The lawsuit seeks compensatory damages, punitive damages, costs and attorneys' fees based on willful copyright infringement, breach of contract, unjust enrichment, conversion and unfair competition.
