$5M Slice Of Meat Loaf

Unfortunately for Sony Music, better late than never doesn’t always apply.

Because the company failed to add the Cleveland International logo to Meat Loaf’s Bat Out Of Hell album for more than a year after a 1998 court settlement ruled it should be included, they must now pay $5 million to the small record company, according to the BBC News.

Court documents show Sony claimed that the label’s founder had fabricated the logo agreement.

Cleveland International’s founder and his former partners were awarded $6.7 million by Sony in an original dispute over royalties from the album.
