This is no joke!

Funnyman Weird Al Yankovic has sued Sony Music Entertainment for $5 million!!

Weird Al’s suit alleges that Sony performed multiple mishaps including: taking improper recoupments resulting in royalty underpayments, violating a licensing agreement they shared with Weird Al, and not sharing the multi-millions received from lawsuit settlements dealing with sites like Napster, Kazaa and Grokster.

Yankovic’s representation will be Richard Busch, a partner at a Nashville-based firm who has successfully sued Universal Music, and represented famed musicians Peter Frampton and Kenny Rogers.

Hmm.

We hope you get what’s yours, Weird Al…we are all for supporting artist rights, NOT big music corporation rights!!

    If your saying Weird Al's career is over then you just don't know anything about Weird Al, or by some freak of nature you just don't like Weird Al.

    …..your probably a Prince fan.

    This goes to prove that the Recording Companies are NOT in it to protect the artist like they say to congress.
