Simon Sues: Tick Tocked Off

Paul Simon is suing a wall clock distributor for using the song "Bridge Over Troubled Waters" to keep time.

Simon filed suit in Manhattan federal court today, claiming Rhythm USA Inc. has sold 40,000 wall clocks that play versions of his legendary tune.

Simon wants to clean the company's clock to the tune of $10 mil. Like a "Bridge Over Troubled Waters," that should ease his mind.
