Judge Dismisses Copyright Suit Against Nirvana Over Dante’s “Inferno” Illustration

As previously reported, Jocelyn Susan Bundy, the granddaughter of artist C.W. Scott-Giles, recently filed a lawsuit against Nirvana after an illustration that her grandfather created for a translation of Dante’s “Inferno” was used on various pieces of merchandise. Now, according to Reuters, the complaint has officially been dismissed. U.S. District Judge Dale Fischer made the decision, saying that it would make more sense to take the case to the United Kingdom. However, he went on to say that the dismissal is contingent on Nirvana agreeing to U.K. jurisdiction if Bundy files a suit there.
