8 directed the band, and chose who could or would be in the band and
9 who would not.
10 12. In 1967, JONES composed and was the sole author and
11 composer of two (2) musical compositions entitled: (a) "Cuttin'

(a) "Cuttin' Grass,-" and (b) "X+Y=13," which were recorded at the
LONG recording studio.
18. From 1967 to the present, JONES had no further
contact with Larry Miller or LONG.
19. In April, 2014, for the first time, JONES learned
that the two (2) performances of JONES'S performing group
"Caretakers of Deception," that of: (a) "Cuttin' Grass,-" and (b)
"X+Y=13," recorded in 1967 at the LONG home recording studio were
apparently pressed and released as a 45RPM recording by a company
identified as SANCTUS, identifying HOBLONG as the music publisher
to the two (2) compositions, which recording identifies "T. JONES,"
that is plaintiff JONES as the composer. A photocopy of the
recording is identified as Exhibit No. 1.
20. JONES did not ever assign his copyright in the two
(2) compositions: (a) "Cuttin' Grass;" and (b) »X+Y=13," to an
entity named HOBLONG nor to any individual or entity. JONES did
not enter into a recording agreement with SANCTUS or any other
person or entity in 1967 or at any time which agreement provided
that entity the right to release any recorded performances of
JONES'S "Caretakers of Deception," performing group.
21. From 1967 to the present, JONES has not received
any communication from an entity identified as either HOBLONG or
SANCTUS.
22. JONES has conducted a search to determine the
location and identify of HOBLONG and SANCTUS.
23. While Broadcast Music Inc., ("BMI") a performance
society, identifies a "Hoblong Music" (Ex. No. 2) it does not
identify any address or location or person associated with HOBLONG.

24. A search of the U.S. copyright office does not
indicate any recordation by HOBLONG or SANCTUS.
25. This claim does not "arise under the copyright
act." This claim is for declaratory relief to have the Court
declare that JONES did not assign his copyright interest to
HOBLONG, and that JONES did not assign his performances in pre-1972
sound recordings to SANCTUS or any individual or entity.
FIRST CLAIM FOR DECLARATORY RELIEF

JONES and HOBLONG requesting a finding by the Court that JONES did
not assign any copyright interest to defendant HOBLONG of JONES'S
authorship interest in the musical compositions: (a) "Cuttin'
Grass;" and (b) "X+Y=13," and that HOBLONG has no right title or
interest in the copyright to the musical compositions, and that
HOBLONG did not ever have or has any right title or interest in the
musical compositions: (a) "Cuttin' Grass,-" and (b) "X+Y=13."
SECOND CLAIM FOR DECLARATORY RELIEF
(Against SANCTUS)
27. JONES further seeks declaratory relief as between
JONES and SANCTUS, that as between JONES and SANCTUS, JONES is the
owner of the sound recordings identified on Exhibit No. 1, the
sound recordings of JONES and JONES'S performing group, "Caretakers
of Deception," of the 1967 recordings of (a) "Cuttin' Grass,-" and
(b) "X+Y=13."
28. The 1976 U.S. Copyright Act, effective January 1,
1978, reaffirmed that only those sound recordings that were
"fixed," that is created after February 15. 1972. are eligible for

statutory copyright. The two (2) sound recordings at issue in this
complaint for declaratory relief as identified on Exhibit No. 1
were fixed in 1967, prior to February 15, 1972, and are governed by
common law copyright or state law protection.
29. California Civil Code 980(2) provides in part that:
The author of an original work of
authorship consisting of a sound
recording initially fixed prior to
February 15, 1972 has an exclusive
ownership therein until February
15, 2047, as against all persons...
WHEREFORE, plaintiff JONES pleads for the Court to:
1. Declare the rights of JONES in the musical
compositions identified with regard to defendant HOBLONG;
2. Declare' the rights of JONES in the two (2) sound
recordings identified with regard to defendant SANCTUS;
3. To declare the rights of JONES as to defendant
LONG ;
4. For costs of suit; and
5. For such further relief as the Court deems
appropriate.
