Nickelback is ready to shake down Warner Music Group for more money, what with the Canadian band being one of the only bands that actually sells records these days. For its part, WMG is trying to hoodwink the band into signing one of those “we own all of you” 360 deals. Wait, really? What? How does the “we know you want more money, but we want you to give us more of your equity” tactic even make sense in this context? [NYP]
