DARE WE SUGGEST THEY'RE JUST JEALOUS?: EMI are taking EA, the video games people, to court, in a slightly convoluted battle over uncleared rights. EA have apparently used a song on several of their sports titles which features a track which quotes lyrics from a song used by EMI (with us so far?); EMI claim EA tried to licence the words from them across 2003 but then went ahead and released the games anyway. It's worth noting in their deposition, EMI demand a slice of the "tens of millions of dollars profit" they believe the games have made - which might account for the sour grapes: A few titles from EA's sports catalogue are out-performing the whole of EMI. Bitter?
