Sony’s latest scandal is making waves once again with their controversial film “The Interview,” but it isn’t with political dictators this time, but with musicians. Sony is on the verge of some legal troubles, for copyright infringement of Yoon Mi Rae’s song, “PayDay.”
The rapper/songstress wasn’t all too pleased that her track was used without it being confirmed with her, nor is she impressed with the films continued success. Her agency, Feel Ghood Music, revealed that there was initial discussion of the use of the track, but there was never a follow up conversation or conclusion. The agency elaborates, “There were initial discussions for using ‘Pay Day’ in the movie, but at some point, the discussions ceased and we assumed that it would not follow through. However, after the movie was released, we learned that the track had been used without permission, legal procedure, or contracts.”
The agency also stated that Sony Pictures won’t be the only ones held accountable and facing legal action, elaborating, “as well as DFSB, the agency that had been carrying out the discussion regarding the use of the track.” Since the news broke, it has not be confirmed whether or not the singer will follow through with legal action.
