Eric Anderson Sheds Light on Criminal Trial Over Stolen Eagles Lyrics in Fox News

Eric Anderson recently spoke to Fox News about the criminal case against three men who have been charged with conspiracy in the fourth degree for allegedly attempting to sell manuscripts containing “developmental lyrics to the Eagles song ‘Hotel California.’” The article delves into the facts of the case as it heads to trial in Manhattan on February 21, 2024, and examines why the case is currently making headlines.  

Eric tells Fox, “Handwritten lyrics from the Eagles to what is arguably their most iconic song from one of the best-selling albums of all time? That is a gold mine, both in terms of value on the auction/memorabilia market and in terms of publicity.”

He goes on to explain why he believes this case led to a criminal charge rather than a civil one, noting that “While this easily could have been addressed via a civil matter, I think the length of time involved may be what led to a criminal charge here and what appears to be a complete lack of effort on the part of the defendants to resolve this outside of a criminal proceeding.”
