Judge can­cels mu­sic deal with Prince’s es­tate

The Hamilton Spectator - - A&E -

A Min­nesota judge ruled Thurs­day that Univer­sal Mu­sic Group should be re­leased from a mu­sic rights deal with Prince’s es­tate. Univer­sal struck a deal with the es­tate in Jan­uary, but the es­tate later sought to can­cel the deal af­ter Warner Bros. Records claimed it con­flicted with a con­tract it signed with Prince in 2014. Carver County District Judge Kevin Eide granted the es­tate’s re­quest in a rul­ing late Thurs­day. Prince died of an ac­ci­den­tal opi­oid over­dose in 2016.
