Britney Spears' Contract Negotiations For X Factor Continue!

britney-spears-contract-negotiations-for-x-factor-continue

It's getting closer and closer to a reality!

This is AMAZING!

Although Britney Spears was said to have rejected the $10 million she was offered to join the judges panel of the new season of X Factor — having wanted at least a $20 million payout — but now, we've gotten word that negotiations are still going on, as her salary does not seem to be an issue!

The pop icon is more concerned about ensuring that she has a one-year "out clause" should she not want to continue after this year!

Charlie Sheen Has A 'Michael J. Fox' Clause In His Contract! WTF Does That Mean?

Filed under: TV NewsLegal MattersCharlie Sheen

charlie-sheen-has-michael-j-fox-clause-in-contract

Why are we not surprised?

Although Charlie Sheen's battle with Warner Brothers was thought to have ended when they fired his ass yesterday, sources connected to the actor claim that he has what's being called a "Michael J. Fox" clause in his contract, which means if the studio continues to try and produce Two and a Half Men, he's legally obligated to still get paid!

Apparently, it's called the Michael J. Fox clause because those terms were written into that actor's contract during his time on Spin City, and ironically, was replaced by Sheen when he left the show!

However, Warner Brothers is asserting that because they fired Charlie, his contract is nullified, and they don't owe him a dime.

Great. Another legal battle!

We're beginning to forget what it felt like for an entire day to go by without hearing that man's name once.

This madness needs to come to an end!

Thoughts??

Pink Floyd Beats EMI Again!

Another win!

Pink Floyd has successfully beaten their record company, EMI, in the courts over whether or not their music can be sold individually by track on-line!

As we've reported, the band has argued that a clause in their contract should prevent EMI for selling their songs separately, as it was signed in 1999, before digital downloads took off.

Their lawyer, Robert Howe, argues that his clients want to "know where they stand as a matter of contract" and is concerned that EMI's "entitlement to sell individual tracks, or indeed any tracks, otherwise than in the original configuration of the Pink Floyd albums" and that they're "wrongly exploiting" the group.

After they originally won their case in March, EMI appealed the decision, and now, the Court of Appeal has once again shut them down!

Ouch!

Sorry guys! If it's in their contract - you can't do it!
