Red Rocks tapes in legal limbo?

Sorry if this is posted elsewhere.

"A vicious legal battle has started over tapes containing footage of one of U2's best concerts.

The Irish band's 1983 Under a Blood Red Sky performance in Denver, Colorado - regarded as one of the group's most accomplished gigs - was shot by Hollywood filmmaker Rick Wurpel.

The gig provided U2 with a best-selling album and saw the value of the tapes soar to millions of dollars.

However, the footage vanished five years ago and has been found in the archives of Denver City Council, which claims it bought the tapes from an employee of Wurpel's for only $3,000.

Denver City Council insists it will only return the reels once Wurpel's rightful ownership has been established."

1. This may explain why we haven't seen a DVD release yet.
2. I sure hope the tapes are being stored properly and aren't rotting away in the trunk of the mayors car or something.
3. These things have a way of sorting themselves out once money issues are resolved. Let's hope so.

Doesn't the band or their management have some say regarding ownership?
