A Texas judge ruled on Wednesday that music composer Papa Berg's lawsuit against WWE over copyrighted music can continue. Berg alleges that he wrote the "hit" song, "Badstreet USA," used by the Fabulous Freebirds, as well as "Man Called Sting," "Simply Ravishing," "The Natural" and "Steineeized." Berg says THQ contacted him to use "Badstreet USA" for the "Legends of Wrestlemania" video game before they noticed the song was owned by WWE.

According to the lawsuit, Berg discovered the song "had been improperly and erroneously registered" by the WWE, "resulting in the royalties being redirected to" the professional wrestling company. The Hollywood Reporter has the full story online at this link.
