They want it Allman - or at least $13m

The Allman Brothers have launched a legal action against their record label, UMG for $13million.

They claim that UMG has diddled them out of their fair share of digital royalties. Even so, thirteen million seems to be an enormous sum of cash - where on earth would someone have got the idea for demanding ridiculous amounts in return for small sums of potential lost earnings due to downloading, eh?
