Bruce Springsteen wants his name removed from a lawsuit demanding licensing fees from a Manhattan bar where a band played his songs.

A statement on Springsteen's website said he didn't know about the lawsuit that was filed on Wednesday in federal court, and wouldn't have agreed to be a plaintiff if he had been asked.

It says Springsteen's representatives demanded the immediate removal of his name on Thursday morning after learning about the lawsuit - filed by the American Society of Composers, Authors And Publishers - which claims Connolly's Pub violated Springsteen's copyrights by letting an unidentified band perform two of his songs for profit.
