A music licensing giant has sued one of Maine’s first craft brew pubs in federal court alleging that it has violated copyright laws by failing to pay licensing fees for music performed there.

Broadcast Music Inc. and five of the songwriters it represents sued Gritty McDuff’s Brew Pub, located at 396 Fore St. in Portland’s Old Port, and owners Richard A. Pfeffer and J. Edward Stebbins Jr. on Tuesday in US District Court in Portland.

Broadcast Music Inc. And the artists are seeking an injunction to stop Gritty’s from infringing on copyrighted materials along with unspecified damages and attorney fees.
