Dion DiMucci filed suit July 2 against the makers of the video game "Fallout 4" for using his tune "The Wanderer" in ads in violation of their agreement to allow him right of refusal. Dion called the ads "repugnant and morally indefensible" and is seeking that his music be removed and he be awarded one million dollars.

I'll tell you one thing, he's a pro on repugnance and indefensible morals Grin

Wonder  what  Ernie Maresca's estate  says.  He  wrote it--alone.

The way copyright law works, Ernie owns the words & music, but Dion owns the performance.  Both would probably have to give approval for its use,

I know--but Ernie lifted the  melody from Kansas City--was he ever sued?   Both  are on Dions Runaround Sue album--sound identical  to  my untrained ears.
