The law firm Jackoway Tyerman Wertheimer Austen Mandelbaum Morris & Klein wants the Los Angeles Superior Court to determine which claimant should receive $600,000 that Universal Pictures owes for the production of “Sudden Death,” a movie starring Jean Claude Van Damme.

     S. Woodrow Zeig aka Woodrow Lin claims he recognized parts of his song “I Like the Way You Walk” in the tune “I Like the Way (You Move),” used in a Diet Coke commercial and performed by the British-Australian duo BodyRockers, a band consisting of Dylan Burns and Christopher Karyotakis. Universal Music Group, Mercury Records and Sony/ATV Music Publishing are also named as defendants in the complaint in Manhattan Federal Court.

     David Burrill, a songwriter and music producer, wants Percy Miller aka “Master P” and Percy Romeo Miller Jr. aka “Romeo” to pay him royalties for allegedly using his song “Casual Thing” on their track “My Life.” Burrill’s lawsuit in Manhattan Federal Court also sues Take A Stand Records, Urban Digital Records, Go Digital Records, Independent Online Distribution Alliance and Wal-Mart Stores.
