Vince Clarke - Vince Clarke Eyes Royalties From Soccer Club

Former Depeche Mode star Vince Clarke is shaping up for a royalties battle with soccer bosses in his native U.K. over their use of the band's hit track Just Can'T Get Enough.
Fans of Scottish team Celtic F.C. have adopted the classic 1981 song as their anthem, and officials at the club occasionally play it over the public address system on match-day.
But the British band's publishers are now chasing Celtic bosses for performance royalties as the track can often be heard in the background during television coverage of games.
Clarke tells the Daily Record, "I am aware of the song being used because I get updates on that. People are always sending me different links to that song and it's very flattering, but I don't know if the publishers are very pleased. They are trying to work out how to collect royalties on the song because it ends up on TV."
