U.S. music labels sue Pandora over royalties for golden oldies
Fri, 18 Apr 2014 01:17:30 +0100
By Joseph Ax NEW YORK (Reuters) - Several major U.S. music companies sued Pandora Media Inc on Thursday, accusing the online streaming service of cheating them out of royalties by playing thousands of pre-1972 recordings without paying royalties. The music in question, from musicians such as the Beatles, Louis Armstrong, Marvin Gaye and Fleetwood Mac, is "some of the most iconic music in the world," the lawsuit said. The plaintiffs include Vivendi SA's Capitol Records Inc and UMG Recordings Inc, Sony Corp's Sony Music Entertainment, Warner Music Group Corp and ABKCO Music & Records Inc. "Pandora is confident in its legal position and looks forward to a quick resolution of this matter," a Pandora spokesman said in an email.

Jamaican music star Vybz Kartel sentenced to life for murder
Thu, 03 Apr 2014 19:27:05 +0100
By Horace Helps KINGSTON (Reuters) - A Jamaican judge sentenced an international reggae-dancehall star, Vybz Kartel, to life imprisonment on Thursday after he was found guilty of murder last month. Kartel, 38, who is also known as ‘World Boss' had been on trial for the murder of one of his former associates, Clive Williams, popularly known as ‘Lizard.' Williams was murdered in August 2011 after a business deal went sour, prosecutors said. Jamaica is known internationally as the birthplace of reggae, with its most famous artist, the legendary Bob Marley considered a national hero. Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, will not be eligible for parole for 35 years, according to the sentence handed down by Supreme Court Justice Lennox Campbell.
