Huge Musician Lawsuit in Canada

I just read about this case in Canada whMusic MP3ere Record Labels have been selling musicians songs on compilation CDs without paying the artists. If the judge in this case uses the Record Label’s standard of $20,000 per song the verdict could be huge! I actually hope this case is ruled in favor of the artists for a large sum of money.
