Singer/songwriter Paul Simon has settled his $10 million lawsuit with a clock company over their alleged unauthorised use of one of his songs.
Simon sued clockmaker Rhythm USA earlier this year, claiming bosses utilised his song Bridge Over Troubled Water for a tune-playing timepiece without his permission.
He sought more than $10 million in the Manhattan Federal suit, after discovering the company’s Grand Nostalgia Clock played an excerpt of his 1970 soft-rock classic.
The star claimed a licence fee for his famous Simon and Garfunkel melody would have cost more than $1 million.
Terms of the agreement have not been disclosed.
