Sony to be Sued for Pirating Music in The Interview

Post by S7 Sticky on Mon Dec 29, 2014 12:04 am

n an ironic reversal, a musician whose music was used in controversial comedy movie The Interview is threatening to sue Sony.
Yoon Mi-rae, a US-born hip-hip artist, was in negotiation Sony to have her track Pay Day included in the soundtrack to The Interview. When negotiations ceased without resolution, Yoon and her management assumed that the deal was off. That was until she discovered that the song had featured in the film, without her permission.
“There were initial discussions for using ‘Pay Day‘ in the movie, but at some point, the discussions ceased and we assumed that it would not follow through,” Feel Ghood Music, Yoon’s record label, said. “However, after the movie was released, we learned that the track had been used without permission, legal procedure, or contracts.”
The label followed, “We will be taking legal action against Sony Pictures as well as DFSB, the agency that had been carrying out the discussion regarding the use of the track.”
