« Fort Hood Shooting Victims Hire Lobbyist on Compensation Issues | Main | D.C. Appeals Court: No Punishment for Exercising Right to Cross-Examination »

I was an exclusive staff songwriter for EMI Music from 1982 until 1990. EMI stopped paying me royalties or sending me my contractually required royalty statements as of Oct 2010. Repeated attempts to resolve this have been unsuccessful. EMI is in breech of their contract with me. I've since learned that a friend of mine (another successful Nashville songwriter) has been dealing with the same issue. The FTC should block the sale of this publishing catalog until EMI has met its contractual obligations to all of it's songwriters and paid due royalties.
