From New York Times:
Adding to the recent wave of artists suing record companies over online royalties, “Weird Al” Yankovic has sued Sony Music Entertainment, saying he is owed more than $5 million. In the suit, filed Friday at United States District Court in Manhattan, Mr. Yankovic says the company underpaid him for videos and other expenses, and also incorrectly counted downloads of his music as “sales” rather than as “licenses,” which pay a higher royalty rate.
