The man behind internet giant Yahoo's familiar signature yodel yesterday said he was taking the company to court claiming he has not been paid for the continued use of his voice.
Wylie Gustafson, of country band Wylie and the Wild West, was recruited by Yahoo in 1996 to provide the 'yahoooooo' yodel for its broadcast advertising campaigns.
Gustafson was paid $590 (£407) for his performance, but will argue in his $5m (£3.5m) lawsuit that he was not told his voice would be used in thousands of following ads years later.
"I tried to resolve the matter with Yahoo informally for over three years without success," Gustafson said in a statement.
Gustafson said that Yahoo had not responded to either himself or his attorney when he sent them a copy of his suit.
