Flo and Eddie founder in Florida.

The Florida Supreme Court has ruled against Mark Volman and Howard Kaylin, a.k.a. the Turtles, a.k.a. Flo and Eddie, saying, essentially, that pre-1972 music is not subject to exclusive public performance rights under Florida common law. It’s been a mixed bag for the duo, having settled suits in California and other states, and having lost a federal ruling in New York.
