The Stern-CBS suit

The Wall St. Journal reports that Sirius will pay CBS $2 million to settle the suit against Howard Stern — but Stern gets the rights to broadcast all his archives, which come cheap. CBS had wanted huge shares of sub revenue for those rights and then wanted huge chunks of Stern’s stock and all it got was $2 million, which probably didn’t cover the legal expenses. Spinsters will spin away but I say Stern won.
