Lawsuit Against UMB For Master Recordings

Universal Music Group is being sued by the estates of Tom Petty, Tupac, Soundgarden, Steve Earle and Hole.  Back in 2008 there was a huge fire that destroyed an estimated 500,000 master recordings by artists ranging from Nirvana to Billie Holiday.  They were held in a facility that UMG had rented from NBC and value the losses from the fire at $150 million.

According to the lawsuit its looking for:

“50% of any settlement proceeds and insurance payments received by UMG for the loss of the Master Recordings, and 50% of any remaining loss of value not compensated by such settlement proceeds and insurance payments.”
