WikiLeaks: Springsteen's Catalog Under Contract With Sony Through 2027

An interesting wikileaks file was unleashed and spread like wildfire today when e-mail exchanges regarding Springsteen's catalog rights were talked about among Sony executives. Under this new agreement talked about in the e-mails, Sony would hold the rights to Springsteen's catalog "through mid-2027." Springsteen also raked in a ton of money for Sony on his last deal, "We also reviewed the economics of the prior deal, which in fact was much larger than the proposed new agreement. Sony Music earned approximately $72 million above the $101 million paid to Springsteen over the term." Check out the link below to catch the e-mails. 

UPDATE: Since there are forums that are posting the specific details of the agreement I will post them below as well for those interested. I was not going to post the details but they are already floating around out there.
