Kayla Perry's insight:

This article talks about the lawsuit that happened between 30 Secords To Mars and their label EMI. It goes more in depth than the other articles about what the lawsuit was over. After releasing their second full length "A Beautiful Lie' on Virgin/EMI to great success the band was stunned to learn the success of the album, even more stunned to learn that their label was sueing them for breach of contract for delivering only two of their contracted five albums. With a lawsuit amounting nearly $30 million dollars, the band was even more shocked to find they were not being paid for any of the album's work. 

 

In 2010 Jared Leto began work a docmentry, now released, called Artifact. The documentry focus on the frustation of the band over the lawsuit and greediness of their record label. Leto talks about the unfairness of recording contracts, and the financal stress it can lead record labels artist to, sending some into debt. It compares the income of artists to managers, and its disproportionate earnings. The documentry features various industry insiders such as artists and managers.

 

Since Artifacts release it has won the award of Peoples Choice Documentry at the Toronto International Film Festival.
