So, once again, if we do this we get crushed under the heel of a team of lawyers.
But a multinational like Sony does it and I bet they'll just dicker and claim some bullshit like fair use they routinely deny exists.
I sincerely hope Sony has to pay a massive fine for this
They should get decently hammered though I don't think it should be crazy. The summary suggests Sony wilfully used the song despite knowing they didn't have a license, but that's a stretch based on the quote from the label
“There were initial discussions for using ‘Pay Day‘ in the movie, but at some point, the discussions ceased and we assumed that it would not follow through,” Feel Ghood Music says.
Almost certainly this was just some production screwup. Someone at Sony thought the the license was taken care, because of that they stopped calling back and the music never got licensed.
