Major record labels are always the first and most vocal cry babies when it comes to piracy. But what happens when they are effectively accused of piracy?
Sony Music Entertainment Canada Inc., EMI Music Canada Inc., Universal Music Canada Inc. and Warner Music Canada Inc. have all been accused of not paying royalties to artists for over 300,000 songs dating as far back as the 90′s. The Financial Post has reported that the defendants have settled for $50.2 million.
It’s no wonder why people don’t take piracy seriously. I wonder if some rogue hacker group is going to hack Sony again for their part in these shenanigans.
