guns n roses sued over alleged e-music theft

Two independent labels sued Guns 'N' Roses for what they claim is unauthorized use of two songs by their artist, electronic musician Ulrich Schnauss (above). The $1 million suit argues that the rock band used portions of the German artist's "Wherever You Are" and "A Strangely Isolated Place" on "Riad N' the Bedouins," a track featured on GNR's much-hyped comeback album Chinese Democracy.

The British label Independiente and Schnauss' North American label Domino were reported as plaintiffs. GNR, its band members (including Axl Rose), and Universal Music Group's Geffen A&M label were named as defendants. Reuters. Rolling Stone.
