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]

Wow this is crazy. This song is a classic. You have to be aware of all the business side of things when it comes to music. I wonder are rappers paying attention to this with all the sampling hip hop uses. But Oaks don't bring back the mustache lol
