Artists, record labels
Tom Jones has begun legal proceedings against a Californian company called C/F International who, he claims, is illegally distributing sound recordings he made as part of a TV show in 1981. Jones and his company, Tom Jones Enterprises, is seeking to stop the licensing firm from distributing rights to sound recordings from the 24 episode Tom Jones Show. The legal papers apparently allege that (a) any licences granted related to TV use only – rather than use of the audio tracks in sound recording devices such as CDs and (b) have in all events terminated because of breach of contract.
