    ◎20世紀50年代的青少年偶像Rick Nelson的遺產管理人對索尼音樂娛樂提出集體訴訟。該訴訟是在紐約的地方法院所提出,訴訟中稱該唱片公司不正當地扣留了Rick Nelson從國際串流媒體收入中獲得的部分版稅。

    ◎根據Variety的報導,訴訟中還指出,索尼對外國串流媒體收入收取的公司間費用高達68%,這不僅違反了與Rick Nelson的合約的條款,還削減了藝人獲取的整體利潤。消息人士告訴Hypebot,其他主要唱片公司和一些獨立唱片公司對外國串流版稅也收取類似的費用。索尼音樂拒絕對此訴訟發表評論。

    ◎Rick Nelson兒童時期與他現實生活中的父母一起主演《The Adventure of Ozzy and Harriet》而展開他的職業生涯,後來成為一位擁有排行榜冠軍作品的流行歌手,代表作品有〈Poor Little Fool〉、〈Travelin' Man〉、〈Hello Mary Lou〉和〈Teen Age Idol〉等。他於1985年去世,享年45歲。

    詳細全文:

    The estate of 1950s teen idol Rick Nelson has filed a class action lawsuit against Sony Music Entertainment. The suit, which was filed in U.S. District Court in New York on Tuesday, alleges that the label is improperly withholding a portion of Nelson's royalties from international streaming revenue.

    Also according to Variety, the complaint goes on to suggest that Sony charges itself intercompany fees of up to 68% on foreign streaming revenues, which not only violates the terms of Nelson's contract but diminishes the overall profit available to artists.

    Sources tell Hypebot that other major labels and some indies charge similar fees on foreign streaming royalties.

    Nelson, who began his career as a child actor starring alongside his real-life parents on "The Adventure of Ozzy and Harriet," eventually became a chart-topping pop singer recording such hits as "Poor Little Fool," "Travelin' Man," "Hello Mary Lou" and "Teen Age Idol."

    He died in 1985 at the age of 45.

    Sony Music declined to comment on the suit.
