One love, one settlement.

One love, one settlement.

Reggae legend Bob Marley’s estate has settled a lawsuit that challenged record label Universal Music Group’s hold over key recordings and also claimed underpayment of royalties from digital downloads. 
In September, District Court Judge Denise Cote found for UMG on the issue of authorship, concluding that the Marley recordings were “works made for hire,” making the record label the legal author of the works under the copyright law. This past Thursday, a federal judge in New York accepted a stipulation by the parties to dismiss the remainder of the dispute without prejudice.
