Allmans sue Sony

Shortly after the founder of Capricorn Records passed away, the Allman Brothers and Cheap Trick have found a new target. Sony Records has been withholding roalties from from most bands signed before 2002 (and the rush to digital music downloading). The bands are hoping to get the suit classified as a class-action to recover approximately 24 cents a song that Sony is writing off to "pressing" and "shipping" fees that Sony surely isn't paying for digital downloads from iTunes. The record companies have long taken advantage of most of their artists, its about time someone or something takes them down a notch given their general stance that they are losing so much money because of mp3's.
