European newspapers have been going wild with this recent story: The Cranberries are going to sue Island/Polygram/Universal for royalites. Is there any truth to this? Read the following article from Norwegian newspaper VG, translated by Frode Andersen
“Demand £ 2 mill. [Approx.]”
“The Cranberries sue their record company, Universal, for £ 2 millions [approx.]. The Irish popgroup claims that they have been conned for royalties in this amount for record sales outside of the U.K., in the time period between 1992 and 1997. The group has sold more than 30 million albums over the whole world during the last ten years.”
In case you’re not pound-friendly, £2 million is approximately $3.1 million US.
