The American Federation of Musicians of the United States and Canada Sues Columbia Pictures, Paramount Pictures, Twentieth Century Fox, Universal City Studios, Walt Disney Pictures and Warner Brothers Entertainment for Reusing Soundtracks in Movies

The American Federation of Musicians of the United States and Canada (AFM) is suing six major studios for reusing film soundtrack clips in other films and television programs without appropriately compensating musicians.

The AFM is seeking award damages for all losses, including prejudgment interest.
