Sony’s getting in trouble down in Mexico apparently. Mexican police raided Sony Music Entertainment Mexico for making unauthorized CDs of Alejandro Fernandez. Fernandez was signed by SMEM until last year when he fulfilled his 7 record commitment with the label, at which point he signed with Universal Music, but Sony then announced an 8th album by the artist using tracks recorded for past records that were cut. This prompted Fernandez and Universal to bring a lawsuit against Sony, as Fernandez seemingly owns the rights to the unreleased material. So basically, what you should be taking in here, is that Sony is being sued for piracy and that, my friends, is hilarious. (via Daily Tech)
