Apple sued for piracy by Pretty Boy Gangsters

The appearance of Rollin Like A Star on iTunes has interested Korvel Sutton. Sutton was a member of Pretty Boy Gangsters, who recorded the track and doesn't recall ever having signed off on the appearance of Rollin... on any of the compilation albums which has caused it to be on iTunes. Sutton is suing Apple for pirating the tracks.

Unlike Apple - who tend to use copyright or patent cases to throw their weight about - all Korvel is looking for is the royalties due to him, and nothing punitive. You'd have to wish him luck.

Especially because the band spelled gangsters correctly.
