Peter Frampton

Peter Frampton

Before the new year, Peter Frampton is making his move.  He’s suing his record company, Universal’s A&M Records, for unpaid digital royalties.   Frampton stance is under the “breach of contract and unfair competition” in the belief that his digital sales profits have not been fairly distributed, Billboard says.  He also believes that he should be paid more for the digital tunes rather than the physical copies of his work. Just because people buy digital more doesn’t mean you’re going to get more money out of it. Frampton’s logic fails a little there.

Frampton has hired music attorney expert Richard Busch to help him collect damages. Busch also helped Eminem battle a record company dispute – coincidentally, Frampton has nearly the same contract as the rapper. Frampton is among the many who are fighting their record companies. Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, and Bob Dylan are fighting to get their intellectual property rights back. Lesson learned; never trust your record company.
