If ANY of those artists are signed to UMG that gives UMG the right to license their works - period. And artist from label A can't appear on an artist from label B's album without clearance from label A.

Even if Megaupload paid all those artists, without clearance from all the labels of the artists involved they can't use the song in public.

No record company in their right mind is going to give Megaupload clearance for anything.

If Kim whatshisname resided in the US that would constitute a criminal (not civil) offense and he could get another "vacation" at state expense.

Too bad, he could stand to lose some of that flab.
so shouldnt Universal sue its artists who were in the video for breach of contract?
