Bootleg archive site Wolfgang's Vault has reached a tentative settlement with the Doors and Santana, two of the artists that sued the site in 2006 for posting free online recordings and selling copyrighted merchandise. Wolfgang's Vault is best known for its collection of memorabilia and concert tapes acquired from concert promoter Bill Graham. In 2006, artists who appeared on the site began suing Sagan, saying his site violated their trademarks. While Wolfgang's Vault managed to settle with the Doors and Santana, two other bands from the initial lawsuit — the Grateful Dead and Led Zeppelin — have not reached an agreement with the site. Even with all these lawsuits going on, the Vault is still streaming concerts by Santana, Zep and the Dead.
