Sony Make Deal With Weird Al After Ripping Him Off Claims

Yes folks it seems that the same companies that whine and complain about folks "stealing from artists" like to put the artists share of the cash into thier own pockets, what a suprise  :/

Weird Al" Yankovic has settled a lawsuit that his company Ear Booker brought against Sony Music in March 2012.

The lawsuit was among many brought by musicians contending that record labels have breached contracts by improperly treating digital downloads as "sales" rather than "licenses." As a result, Yankovic only received about 15 percent of shared income off of digital hubs like iTunes instead of 50 percent.

The singer also demanded payments from licensing agreements and settlements that Sony had struck with third-parties including Spotify and Vevo, and also said that he had seen nothing from monetary awards and settlements that came through the record industry's legal battles with Napster, Kazaa, Grokster and others.

When you know just how much many of the artist get in royalties you have to ask these big recording companies is 95% of the revenues not enough for you ?
