Pop Legend, Paul McCartney sues Sony Music


Pop legend, Paul McCartney filed a lawsuit against Sony/ATV Music Publishing on Wednesday January 18, 2017 in an attempt to regain the rights to a long list of Beatles hits that he either wrote or co-wrote with John Lennon.



According to court documents songs such as "Yesterday," "I Want to Hold Your Hand" and others Beatles hit songs are subject to the suit.


So far, Sony has declined to comment on the matter but McCartney is arguing that the 1976 Copyright Act should allow him to start reclaiming ownership of the songs from Sony/ATV next year.

You'll recall that Sony and Michael Jackson formed Sony/ATV in 1995, a decade after the King of Pop paid $41.5 million to acquire the ATV catalog, which included many Beatles songs, at the time, Jackson outbid McCartney to clinch the deal.
