Artifact

Musicians, music listeners, and music lovers: this is a documentary that you have to see! Artifact follows the intense lawsuit between 30 Seconds to Mars and their label, EMI.

EMI sued the band for $30 million for breach of contract for failing to deliver the third album on it’s five-album contract. Jared Leto says that they were legally terminating their contract due to the fact that in California, you can’t be bound to a contract for more than seven years. Who will win this complicated lawsuit? Watch to find out the verdict and just howcorrupt the music business, specifically record labels, can be.
