The company claimed that Lambert made a false claim under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act in order to have Amazon.com take the album off its digital shelves. But after taking the matter to court, Colwel prevailed; according to a new statement from the group:
“The Colwel Platinum Entertainment lawsuit against Adam Lambert has been resolved. Adam has withdrawn any objections to the release of Beg For Mercy and he has approved the use of his songs and performances in these pre-Idol recordings which are interpretations of his artistic vision at the time. Neither Colwel Platinum Entertainment, Inc. nor Malcolm Welsford ever stated that Adam was not eligible to participate in American Idol when he did so and regret that the lawsuit’s allegations were misinterpreted.”
