Thread: Quincy Jones loses $ 9.4 million royalty dispute on appeal by estate

  1. Quincy Jones loses $ 9.4 million royalty dispute on appeal by estate

    A legal battle between two superstars aging music producer Quincy Jones and the late Michael Jackson was upended Tuesday by a California appeals court.

    The case, in which Jones and the Jackson estate are fighting over the producer's claims to millions in royalties, hit a roadblock after the California Court of Appeal reversed a $9.4 million judgment in Jones' favor.

    The court ruled that the trial judge in the case erred in allowing the 2017 trial jury to decide things the judge should have decided namely contract interpretation.


    That led to the jurors accepting Jones' argument he was entitled to more than the standard 10% producing fee called for in his contracts with the Jackson estate for his work on projects produced after Jackson's death in 2009, including remixes of hit songs as well as the licensing of masters for the "This Is It" documentary.

    The court erased most of the jury's award to Jones a total of $9.4 million and sent the case back to the trial court to amend the judgment accordingly.

    Quimskipplesnipster deserves far less than he ever got going purely off the demos and stuff we've heard about behind the scenes since, apart from applying a lick of polish he did barely anything to MJs hits which were virtually completed at home before Jones got his Dr Dre on - meaning do very little work but take most of the credit and associated points.

    His comments on MJ prove that he's saltier than the Dead Sea and has a lot in common with summer break - no class.

    Could this royalty dispute a reason why the estate hasn't released any Q (co)produced unreleased tracks so far?

    Yes, I always assumed this was the reason, he would probably make a big deal out of it.
