Busch Talks About Music Industry Profits

The Tennessean profiles the lawyer representing music giant F.B.T. Productions, the Detroit hip-hop producers behind rap artist Eminem’s musical success, about the win that would give an equal split of profits with their record company for downloads of Eminem’s music. The ruling, Richard Busch believed, would have huge implications for the entire recording industry in terms of how companies pay artists in a new era of digital music. In fact, the 2010 decision has spawned a series of other lawsuits brought by artists of all genres against their record labels. Earlier this month, Busch negotiated confidential settlements in similar cases for two clients — Peter Frampton and Kenny Rogers.
