Sony Screws Artists… Again

Bands that signed with Sony between 1962 and 2002 hope to get a less-raw deal than they historically have. Selling songs online means no pressing plants, no distribution costs, no returns due to breakage, and so on. New artists benefit from these factors by making 30 cents on the buck when selling online, but Sony wants their bread-and-butter bands to make the same amt/song selling online as they always have (4 cents). Cheap Trick and The Allman Bros. are suing for their share.
