Lawyers Take Aim At Guns N' Roses

Two indie labels have apparently joined forces to take legal action based on the contention that Guns N' Roses used portions of two from songs by a German artist named Ulrich Schnauus in Riad n' The Bedouins, a song on the GNR album Chinese Democracy.  A Reuters report says the two record labels filed a $1 million claim that names Axl Rose, other GNR members, the album's producers and Universal Music labels.  If resolving the suit takes even half as long as GNR took to put the album out the legal fees will dwarf the settlement.
