Megadeth "The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead!"

Megadeth’s latest album “The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead!” has drawn a lawsuit from New York-based illustrator Brent Elliot White who says he hasn’t received pay or credit for his artwork.

White claimed he “created artwork and characters over time for Megadeth that have become an integral part of the band’s identity” and was contacted about “The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead!” album in early 2020. But there was no signed written contract. 

Megadeth and others were named in a copyright infringement suit that asserted multiple claims under New York’s Freelance Isn’t Free Act, which requires a written contract for work valued at $800 or more and sets standards for the timing of payment.
