Duran Duran lose copyright battle

Pop group Duran Duran have lost a High Court fight to reclaim the US rights to some of their most famous songs.
Simon Le Bon and other members of the group had argued that US copyright laws gave them the right to call for a reversion of copyright after 35 years.
But lawyers for Gloucester Place Music Ltd, part of EMI Music Publishing, successfully argued that English laws of contract stopped them from doing so.
Girls on Film, Rio and A View To A Kill were among the disputed tracks.
