Madonna’s first-ever concert in Kyiv last August left lots of fond memories for fans, but a legal nightmare for the show’s organizers. Melnitsa International, who brought the pop queen to Ukraine, lost a lawsuit on Jan. 18 for apparently violating Madonna’s copyright.

The company was ordered by a Kyiv district court to pay Hr 1.09 million($136,000) in damages, including Hr 322,866 (about $40,000) to Madonna herself. But it’s unclear whether the diva knows anything about the cash the Ukrainian court awarded her because it wasn’t her who started the legal process and claimed her rights were breached.

Madonna’s spokesperson did not respond to requests for comments by the time Kyiv Post went to press.
