The Chipmunks Want EMI To Pay What They Owe!

| Filed under: Music MinuteWacky, Tacky & TrueLegal MattersBusiness Blitz


We didn't realize that those effing chipmunks were so lawsuit-happy!

Bagdasarian Productions, which owns the Alvin and the Chipmunks franchise, is reportedly pressing charges against EMI for allegedly failing to pay royalties on a 24-song boxed set of the cartoon critters' music!

According to legal documents filed by Ross Bagdasarian, Jr., his company demands damages for both breach of contract and copyright infringement. According to the terms of his license, EMI was required to pay about 9 cents per musical composition reproduced or distributed whether or not sold, or $1.75 per minute of playing time for each musical composition.

EMI has failed to do so, which means that each of the 24 songs is subject to collective statutory damages of potentially $3.6 million!


They little outfits and squeaky voices are cute, but hell - they'll take you for all you've got!

Better settle this one fast, guys! We would not want to mess around with them!
