Don't know about K-tel (although it seems the company still pretends 
existence by having a semi-active Facebook-flow as well as a 
Twitter-account). The Emerald banner seems only to be used on the 
"cover" - and is really strange; most of this Irish label's output was 
and is Irish music, and there's seemingly no connection between the 
Irish label and the now defunct K-tel Ireland.

But how could you sue anyone for having used your transfers?  As I 
recall this copyright question was discussed here a few years ago and 
the conclusion was: unfortunately there exists no copyright on this type 
of creative work. And wasn't there a legal case with Naxos involved? 
Naxos claiming rights to technical work they had done with some 
recordings, but losing the case.
