Weird Al Suing Sony Over Royalties

The funnyman of pop music isn’t all smiles lately, as Rolling Stone reports that “Weird Al” Yankovic is suing Sony Music over unpaid royalties. The $5 million dollar lawsuit is a result of Yankovic not being properly compensated for digital download sales, as well as unsettled recoupments from illegal downloads of his music from services such as Napster and Kazaa. Rolling Stone says the case is likely to hold up in court, as Eminem won a similar battle last year. Don’t worry Al, if you really need the cash, you can always go back to satirizing today’s most popular songs, right?
