Eminem suit may benefit older artists

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “The labels make tens of millions of dollars a year from the deep catalog without paying a penny in promotion costs. Anybody who ended their recording career before 1978, and probably before 1992, is in the decision… For people who had a single hit, who couldn’t afford to chase $100 in owed royalties, they are now looking at a couple thousand. It’s worth a couple phone calls and an angry letter or two.” —attorney Fred Wilhelms, who specializes in collecting royalties for musicians, on the implications of the legal decision that digital music should be treated as a license, in Ben Sisario’s N.Y. Times piece, “Eminem Lawsuit May Raise Pay for Older Artists.” (3/28a)
