The 1968 track was allegedly used for Aguilera's Grammy-winning hit song "Ain't No Other Man."

According to the lawsuit, TufAmerica claims Sony paid the wrong distributor for the rights to use the song. Sony originally arranged the deal with Condigo Mysic and the Clyde Otis Music Group.

"Hippy Skippy Moon Strut" was originally sung by Dave Cortez and the Moon People.

The court papers claim TufAmerica is seeking punitive damages and to nullify other publishers' claims to the rights.
