Guns N’ Roses Sued For Copyright Infrigement

6 October 2009 One Comment Print This Post Print This Post

Independiente, a UK-based record label and Domino Records in the US, are seeking damages against Guns N’ Roses for copyright infringement.  They allege that G N’ R copied parts of two songs by Ulrich Schnauss, a German electronic musician.  The labels feel that Schnauss’ songs, Wherever You Are and A Strangely Isolated Place, were used, without permission, on Guns N’ Roses last album, Chinese Democracy – specifically on the track Riad N’ The Bedouins.

The lawsuit is looking for a cool one-million clams in damages.
