Rondor Responds

RONDOR RESPONDS: According to a Rondor spokesperson, there is no current lawsuit against the writer or publishers of "California Gurls," though they have established what they call a "diminutive claim":  “It is up to the six writers and various publishers of 'California Gurls' to decide whether they honor the claim or not. Using the words or melody in a new song taken from an original work is not appropriate under any circumstances, particularly from one as well known and iconic as 'California Girls.' Rondor Music, who publishes the works of Brian Wilson and Mike Love, is committed to protecting the rights of its artists and songwriters, and with the support of the writers, that is exactly what we are doing.” (8/5p)
