(Reuters) – Hipgnosis Songs mentioned on Monday it’s in search of safety in opposition to a possible legal responsibility from founder Merck Mercuriadis on a authorized declare in opposition to the music royalties fund, its funding adviser and the business veteran.
Hipgnosis Music Restricted (HML), based in 2015 and now being wound up, served proceedings in November alleging “a diversion of enterprise alternative” from HML to the London-listed fund and Hipgnosis Tune Administration, which have been based by Mercuriadis in 2017.
