BMI Goes After DMX

BMI VS. DMX: BMI has filed an appeal of the recent decision in favor of DMX issued by Judge Louis Stanton, the org’s rate-court judge to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. No, not the rapper, but the background music company. BMI's appeal on behalf of its songwriters, composers and music publishers will seek reversal of a court decision that, according to DMX’s own outside counsel, will allow them to “pay fees approximately 65% lower than those sought by BMI.” Said BMI’s Del Bryant: “Our writers and publishers should not be expected to lose more than half of their income from DMX based on the court’s erroneous holdings, which substantially reduce the value of their creative efforts.  But I did love his album, It's Dark and Hell is Hot."(8/25p)
