Dr Dre has won a lawsuit against Death Row Records for the rights to his iconic album ‘The Chronic’.
Dre won the case against the record label to own 100 per cent of all digital sales made from the album, his attorney, Howard King, told The Associated Press.
Dre sued Death Row Records last year claiming that he was not receiving a fair amount of profits from digital sales of “The Chronic” and that the label was using some of his music on compilation albums without his permission. For years, Death Row Records forgot about Dre when they continued to distribute his music digitally and combined his hits with weaker Death Row tracks in an attempt to elevate the stature of their other artists.We are gratified that the federal court has unambiguously declared that Death Row has no right to engage in such tactics, and must hold all proceeds from these illicit distributions in trust for our client.”
