Cash Money Owes Orange Factory Music $1.14M in Jay Sean Royalty Case
Cash Money Records owes Orange Factory Music $1.14 million in royalties owed for songs produced for Jay Sean dating back to Dec. 31, 2012, a Louisiana magistrate judge ruled on Wednesday.
The lawsuit against Cash Money included a number of songs that Orange Factory produced on contract, as well as some that were produced without any written agreement.
Those with a contract were "Down," "Fire," "Lights Off," "Do You," "Do You Remember," "If I Ain’t Got You," "Love Like This" and "War" from Jay Sean's 2009 All or Nothing album.
The songs without a contract in place were from the British R&B singer's 2012 So High Japan-edition release, including tracks "2012," "Hit the Lights," "Like This Like That" and "I'm All Yours."
In magistrate judge Karen Wells Roby's recommendation she found in favor of the plaintiff, stating royalties were owed for those All or Nothing songs and determined that Orange Factory should be deemed co-authors on the second set of songs and are owed 50 percent of the money those songs generated, totaling nearly $1.14 million including legal fees.
A magistrate judge's recommendation must be adopted by a District Court Judge to become an official ruling, but most recommendations are approved.
