And here is a Billboard article on that SoundExchange v SiriusXM suit
"SoundExchange has filed a lawsuit against SiriusXM Radio that contends SiriusXM "systematically underpaid" royalties from 2007 to 2011. The complaint was filed on Monday (Aug. 26) in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. SoundExchange seeks compensatory damages of $50 million to $100 million or more, plus late fees and interest."
"Monday's lawsuit differs from the one filed against SiriusXM earlier this month by the Turtles. As Broadcast Law Blog explains, that lawsuit takes issue with SiriusXM's reproduction of songs in the digital transmission process and by some features of SiriusXM's online service."

Subject: [ARSCLIST] Another really interesting article in today's WSJ
And then there's the piece in today's WSJ (Section B, page 3) "Sirius sued over music royalities for legacy works" - the issue is monies due for
pre-1972 phonograms. So now the Turtles are suing in California based on California copyright for their pre-72 recordings. Looks like an ideal reason to bring pre-72 into the Federal copyright regime.
