Hall and Oates heading to court over “Maneater”

    Eighties icons and BFFs Darryl Hall and John Oates are prepared to head to court to prove their publisher failed to properly enforce the copyright on their 1982 hit "Maneater." The suit charges that Warner/Chappell Music breached its contractual agreement by refusing to sue for infringement when an "unnamed artist" (Nelly Furtado) used "Maneater" in a 2006 song. The duo is seeking unspecified monetary damages and the right to terminate their contract with Warner/Chappell. The publishing company has not issued a statement about the suit. Oates has also been mum about whether he will be growing back his trademark mustache to increase good will with prospective jurors. [Billboard]
