– Major record label EMI has been sued by copyright administrator Bluewater
Music Services for alleged failure to pay royalties owed to artists including
The Doobie Brothers, The Guardian reported.
The lawsuit concerns some two dozen
songs, for which the label allegedly has not paid royalties to artists for their
use in compilations and as ringtones.
The charges come after the U.K. High
Court ruled against EMI in a dispute over royalties brought by veteran rock
band Pink Floyd.
