Atlantic Recording Corp Key Developments

American Federation of Musicians and Employers' Pension Fund Sues Atlantic Recording Corporation, Hollywood Records, Sony Music Entertainment, Universal Music Group Recordings, Inc, and Warner Brothers Records, Inc

The American Federation of Musicians and Employers' Pension Fund (AFM Pension Fund) has sued Atlantic Recording Corporation, Hollywood Records, Sony Music Entertainment, Universal Music Group Recordings, Inc, and Warner Brothers Records, Inc. for failing to make pension fund contributions. The suit states that the five recording companies failed to make pension fund payments from foreign audio stream revenue and foreign and domestic ringback revenue. Last year independent auditors discovered that the recording companies had not made the required revenue payments from foreign audio streams, ringbacks, and foreign non-permanent downloads. Attempts to reconcile the issues outside of court have been ongoing for several months to no avail. Suit was filed in New York. This is the fifth lawsuit filed against major media corporations for contract violations in the past few months. The suit seeks payment for all missing revenue owed the AFM Pension Fund, late payment penalties, interest, damages and legal costs.
