Sony Sued Over Baby Driver’s Unauthorized Music Usage | Pitchfork

Uh-Oh

A lawsuit has been brought against Sony Pictures that alleges the studio unlawfully used the T. Rex song “Debora” in Edgar Wright’s recent music-centric action movie Baby Driver, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The plaintiff, Rolan Feld, is the son of T. Rex frontman Marc Bolan, who died in 1977. In 2014, Feld successfully sued for the rights to 144 copyrights connected to the band’s catalog, including a claim to “Debora.” In the complaint, Feld states that Sony reached out to his lawyer to request a license for the song to be included on the soundtrack, but then cut off communication shortly after Feld informed the company that its use of the song in the film was unauthorized.
