Back on the 19th, we had the story of Wally Gustafson, the man who sang the Yahoo sound tag but only got paid about $590. News comes today that a day or so after he sued Yahoo — but before the story of the suit hit the press — the company paid him some significant amount of money, and now Wally’s happy. Dunno if he’ll be collecting royalties.
Speaking of royalties, you do know that the AOL guy who says “You’ve Got Mail” doesn’t get any, right? He was some friend of someone, and got a (small) one-time payment.
