Pop legend, Paul McCartney sues Sony Music
Paul McCartney filed a lawsuit against Sony/ATV Music Publishing.
The suit filed on Wednesday January 18, 2017 is an attempt to regain the rights to a long list of Beatles hits that he either wrote or co-wrote with John Lennon.
Documents revealed that songs such as “Yesterday,” “I Want to Hold Your Hand” and others Beatles hit songs are subject to the suit.
McCartney is arguing that the 1976 Copyright Act should allow him to start reclaiming ownership of the songs from Sony/ATV next year.
Sony Music and Michael Jackson had formed Sony/ATV in 1995, after he paid $41.5 million to acquire the ATV catalog, which included many Beatles songs.
