Funkmeister George Clinton just realized what the price of playing around with a judgment really means — a judge granted his ex-law firm Hendricks & Lewis the copyrights for his jams:  “Hardcore Jollies,””The Electric Spanking of War Babies,” “Uncle Jam Wants You” and “One Nation Under a Groove,” to settle a $1.5 million judgment the firm won against him in 2010.

TMZ reports that the ruling gives Hendricks & Lewis the right to sell or use the music any way it sees fit, with all the money going towards paying back the original judgment. Once the judgment is paid off, the copyrights go back to George Clinton. He has filed a motion to reverse the decision.
