Winehouse family ban Danish play

Amy Winehouse's father has stopped the performance in Denmark of a play about the late singer, refusing permission for the use of her music and photos.

The play Amy, which was to have opened on January 30 in a 220-seat theatre in central Copenhagen, was based on interviews, concerts, Amy's letters and newspaper articles. Denmark's Royal Theatre had earlier been granted a permit to perform the play by the Danish copyright agency Koda.

"We acted in good faith when we gave them the permission for the performance. We believed that the format - a theatre play - was ok," a Koda spokesman said. "We were told by her father and the lawyers around him that we can forget all about the rights for the music, the photos, branding and everything."

Koda said Mitch Winehouse objected to the use of any of her music, photos or belongings but gave no reason why.

Amy, written by a group of 11 Danish playwrights, depicted her life and relationship with drugs and alcohol.

The Grammy-winning soul singer died from alcohol poisoning in July last year aged of 27.
