Bob Marley's Family Loses Copyright Battle to Universal Music Group

It's a sad day for white kids with dreadlocks. Bob Marley's family has lost its fight with Universal Music Group over what they claim was exploitation of some of his greatest music.

The Marleys tried to obtain the copyrights to five of Bob's albums and claimed that UMG owes them royalties.

Light up some incense and play a game of pick-up soccer today in honor of the unfortunate failure of the family of one of reggae's most talented legends.
