Hall and Oates Sue Publisher

Daryl Hall and John Oates are suing their music publisher. They say their song ‘Maneater’ was used without their permission, and that the publisher refused to protect their publishing agreement.

The suit, which was filed in Manhattan, says that a singer-songwriter used the song in 2006, and when they asked their publisher Warner/Chappell to sue for copyright infringement, the company refused.

Hall and Oates are now are seeking damages from Warner/Chappell and want to end their contract with the company.

Warner/Chappell spokeswoman Amanda Collins said Thursday the lawsuit was "completely without merit." She added, "We will defend ourselves vigorously."
