Possible innaccuracy[edit]

"...the European Union annulled the European Commission's clearance decision as..."

How exactly does the European Union do anything? Doesn't one of its bodies have to do it (most likely the Commission). The EU itself is just a collective name for all the institutions, so how can it as a whole "annull" the merger? - Рэдхот(tce) 00:34, 19 March 2007 (UTC)


Isn't Elektra still part of the WEA / Atlantic Records group - on the Elektra page, I can't see any ref to Elektra being owned by Sony

Could this be an inaccuracy as well?: "Financial analysts covering the merger anticipated that up to 2,000 jobs would be cut as a result, saving Sony BMG approximately $350 million annually." -They let go 2000 employees averaging $175,000 per year each?"Landroo (talk) 19:46, 26 August 2013 (UTC)

Jammie Thomas[edit]

The "Jammie Thomas" case was removed saying it was biased and was no controversy at all. Well, of course it is a controversy - a quick Google search shows all the hostility generated against the RIAA by this case. Perhaps such blatant fines do not strike Americans particularly, but Swiss newspapers (the NZZ on 10/07/2007 for example) certainly found it shocking enough to report it. I don't know what kind of source is required, but here's one for the trial: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/10/05/business/media/05music.html?ex=1349323200&en=153b0928c2c56c5e&ei=5124&partner=permalink&exprod=permalink Momotaro (talk) 01:46, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

Sony BMG is now gone[edit]

R.I.P. Sony BMG. 2004-2008. We will miss you. :( --ItsCharlieBrown (talk) 18:20, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

08 lawsuit[edit]

I'm not sure if this is worthy of inclusion, in 2008, Sony BMG was sued by PointDev for using pirated software. (The Inquirer)--76.24.11.2 (talk) 06:24, 13 January 2012 (UTC)

Controversy section blanked without explanation[edit]

The Controversy section was blanked without explanation by a one-use IP on 19 March 2012‎. Restored; editors should keep an eye on this page. Rolf H Nelson (talk) 04:03, 22 October 2013 (UTC)
