Dre Performs Recordectomy on Musicmaker
Musicmaker.com, which announced last week a licensing deal to provide tracks from the Death Row catalog for use in custom compilations (see story below, dated 3/17), has been put on a strict diet by Dr. Dre, Death Row’s co-founder and most successful artist. Dre’s orders, being carried out by his attorney, are for Musicmaker to remove the 27 Dre tracks put on its site as part of the Death Row deal.

Dre attorney Howard King told Musicmaker that as part of Dre’s exit from Death Row, his agreement stipulated that the label retained only rights to material in the same configuration and media as when released. As damages, Dre is seeking all gross proceeeds from the sale or distribution of his performances.
