Botticelli's Sued Over Music

botticellis-ql.jpgSouth Congress restaurant Botticelli's has been sued by BMI for playing Paul Simon songs without a license. The firm that collects the license fees and then distributes the royalties to artists has tried contacting the restaurant 10 times since 2009 to work out a deal, but to no avail. Now owner Matt Botticelli may not be going to Graceland, but instead may be forced to hear the sound of silence. [ABJ]
