: Dr. Dre battles Deathrow Records.
Deathrow has a three year licensing deal with Musicmaker.com which is selling tracks from Dr. Dre's Deathrow albums, including them on custom compilation cd's. Dre counters that Deathrow has no right to license or sell individual tracks from his albums, only the album as a whole.
Dre's handlers are expected to send a cease and desist letter to Musicmaker.com. Bill Crowley, Senior VP of the site went on record saying they have no plans to stop offering Dr. Dre's music until the Deathrow lawyers and Dre's people work out the issue.
