Copyright infringement suit[edit]

This article states that Kid Ory's daughter was ordered to pay McDonald $750,000 for attorney fees, etc. The article on "Country Joe McDonald" states the amount as $395,000. Both state that she had to sell her copyrights [sic] to pay the fees. Neither article provides a reference for either statement and I can't find one on the net that doesn't quote Wikipedia as the source (if one is given at all). That she was ordered to pay fees is certain; that ruling is explicitly upheld in the Ninth Circuits ruling on her appeal.

Unless someone can find a solid reference for these statements, I suggest that this portion of the article should simply reflect that Orly was ordered to pay McDonald's attorney fees, without stating an amount or that she had to sell copyrights to raise the money.-- John W.
