Weird Al Settles With Sony

Weird Al Yankovic settled a year old $5 million lawsuit against Sony Music. Yankovic claimed he had been cheated on digital income and he had not seen money from the Napster settlement, among other complaints. With regards to digital income, Yankovic alleged Sony improperly treated digital downloads as sales rather than licenses thus he only received 15% of the income instead of 50%. The parties filed in New York federal court this week to dismiss the case with prejudice however no details about the settlement agreement have been released.
