Marc Bolan's son is suing the makers of 'Baby Driver'

Edgar Wright's action crime drama Baby Driver has been one of the hits of the summer, taking in just under $140m at the USA box office - but now a lawsuit regarding the unlicensed use of T Rex song "Debora" looks set to spoil the party at Sony Pictures.

However, now Bolan's son Rolan Feld, has filed a lawsuit against Sony Pictures Entertainment and others over the use of the track.

"Inexplicably, Defendants failed to obtain - or even seek - the permission of the composition's US copyright holder Rolan Feld", the complaint reads.

As The Hollywood Reporter explains, Feld is seeking disgorgement of profits and punitive damages.

ValuEngine raised Chimera Investment Corporation from a "buy" rating to a "strong-buy" rating in a report on Saturday, June 3rd. Sit Investment Associates Inc. boosted its position in shares of Chimera Investment Corporation by 143.6% in the first quarter.

"In the six weeks since Feld brought this infringement to Sony's attention, [Sony] have done little more than point fingers at one another-and they have neither apologised nor offered to pay Feld a reasonable license fee".

Feld says he only learned about the use of the song when a representative from Sony Music contacted him asking for a licence to use it in the film.

In interviews promoting the movie, director Edgar often spoke about the lengths he went to obtain clearance to use songs. "Plaintiff promptly informed Defendants (through communications with Sony) that the use of the Composition in the Film was unauthorized". Sony bosses are yet to publicly respond to his legal complaint.
