HOW THE RECORD COMPANY ENSURES ITS ARTISTS GET THEIR DUES: Badly, judging by the number of singers who feel ill will towards their paymasters. Cher and the descendents of Sonny Bono are suing Warners claiming breach of contract. The lawsuit claims that when Warner took over Atlantic, it breached the contracts Sonny and Cher had signed with the smaller label. They're looking to scoop back a quarter of a million bucks.

Of course, not paying royalties is akin to, you know, stealing music off the internet or something.
