Since writing a Reader cover story about the documentary MC5: A True Testimonial in April 2004, I haven’t closely followed the efforts of filmmakers Laurel Legler and David Thomas to give their terrific movie a theatrical release—the completed film has been in legal limbo for about seven years, almost as long as they spent making it. But it appears they can see light at the end of the tunnel: in April 2007 I blogged that a lawsuit against the filmmakers by MC5 guitarist Wayne Kramer and his wife Margaret had been dismissed; the main thrust of the suit was that Legler and Thomas had used the band’s music in the film without licensing it from Warner/Chappell Music, which owns the publishing rights.
