October 5th, 2011 2:33pm EDT
David Cassidy
Former teen idol David Cassidy is taking his battle for merchandising compensation from his days on 1970s show The Partridge Family to court.

The singer/actor shot to fame as Keith Partridge on the popular ABC sitcom in 1971, before embarking on a pop career.

Network bosses continually used his image to sell products branded with the hit series, but Cassidy only realized earlier this year that ABC executives had raked in approximately $500 million from the merchandise - and he has been seeking a share of the profits ever since.

On Wednesday, Cassidy filed suit against Sony Pictures En...

JoBros

They’re a record label staple: young acts that can spur an enamored tween demographic, one without disposable income, to force their parents do the spending for them with tears and declarations of imminent death if they don’t have that poster hanging in their room or an entire album downloaded on itunes. While it is clear that some tween acts have been less talented than others, they are still generally met with a particular sort of disdain...
