Record Companies Name Store in Duval in Pirated Music Lawsuit; Division Street Business Accused of Selling Illegal CDs; Injunction Sought


A group of major record labels sued a Jacksonville convenience store Thursday, accusing it of copyright infringement in the sale of pirated music CDs.

The lawsuit was filed by the Recording Industry Association of America against EZ Stop Food Store-Discount Beverage on Division Street and retailers in Ocala, Orlando and New York. An association spokeswoman said the lawsuit defendants have refused attempts to settle the cases.

The federal lawsuits ask for injunctions and monetary damages.

EZ Stop's owner couldn't be reached for comment and the store was not represented by counsel as of late Thursday.

Another EZ Stop store, this one on New Kings Road, was ordered in 2004 to pay the association $40,000 as a result of a similar copyright lawsuit.

"This is the second round of lawsuits that we have had against retailers selling pirated product," said Brad Buckles, executive vice president for anti-piracy at the association.

No one was hurt. No customers were in the store at the time, Sheriff's Office Detective Larry Kuczkowski said.

TEEN ARRESTED AT SCHOOL

Police arrested a 13-year-old Jacksonville student about 7 a.m. Wednesday after he was accused of chasing another student with a steak knife at Matthew Gilbert Middle School.

The two boys had an argument outside the cafeteria of the school at 1424 Franklin St. but a security guard shooed them away from the area, according to a Sheriff's Office report. The fight continued when the 13-year-old followed a 14-year-old victim. The older boy told authorities he pushed the other boy into some bushes to get away from him.

Witnesses told police the 13-year-old then went after the older boy with a steak knife with a blade more than 6 inches long, telling the victim: "I'm not finished with you yet."

An assistant principal seized the knife from the boy, who told police he found the knife in the bushes and used it to defend himself.

The 13-year-old faces a misdemeanor charge and felony charges of possessing a weapon on school grounds and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill. …
