Weird Al Yankovic Sues Sony Music!!

This is no joke!

Funnyman Weird Al Yankovic has sued Sony Music Entertainment for $5 million!!

Weird Al’s suit alleges that Sony performed multiple mishaps including: taking improper recoupments resulting in royalty underpayments, violating a licensing agreement they shared with Weird Al, and not sharing the multi-millions received from lawsuit settlements dealing with sites like Napster, Kazaa and Grokster.

Yankovic’s representation will be Richard Busch, a partner at a Nashville-based firm who has successfully sued Universal Music, and represented famed musicians Peter Frampton and Kenny Rogers.

Hmm.

We hope you get what’s yours, Weird Al…we are all for supporting artist rights, NOT big music corporation rights!!
