Eddie Van Halen Suing Videographer Over Unreleased Van Halen Rehearsal Footage

According to TMZ, Eddie Van Halen has filed a lawsuit against videographer Andrew Bennett, to prevent the release of 2006 Van Halen rehearsal footage featuring him, his brother Alex Van Halen, and his son, Wolfgang Van Halen. Bennett was hired to film for a DVD/video project, but plans were scrapped when Eddie didn’t like the footage. Bennett tried to release it years later after claiming he was never paid, but Eddie says everything was settled in 2015, and that he owns the rights to the footage. Now, Bennett is trying to sell the footage again and even shared a trailer for it on his website. The site was “suspended for copyright infringement”, but Bennett just switched to another site with a similar name. Eddie is now trying to get a judge to remove the video, and to stop Bennett from releasing or selling it.
