Sony Office Raided

Sony Music’s Mexico City office was raided by federal agents and thousands of discs were seized as part of a legal dispute between the company and ranchera singer Alejandro Fernandez.

The company says it is “surprised and disappointed” by the seizure of recordings the company says are “totally authorized.”

Agents seized 6,397 CDs after Fernandez’s reps complained the label was continuing to use the singer’s videos, music and photos, even after his contract with Sony ran out in 2008. Fernandez has since signed with Universal Music.
