‘Sugar Man’ Suit
Sixto Rodriguez, subject of the documentary “Searching for Sugar Man,” has been pulled into a lawsuit over his 1970 album, Cold Fact.
Gomba Music is suing Interior Music Corp., claiming it owns the copyright to the songs penned by Rodriguez, not Interior.
The lawsuit says the musician concealed his writing role to sidestep a publishing agreement he had with Gomba. Interior, in response, blames Rodriguez for the legal problems and named him as a third-party defendant.
