George definitely lost big against Sony and I'm sure it sent a huge message to the whole music industry. If George would have won that case it would have set a precedence and been a huge victory for all music artists, which I think ladyjayne touched on in her post as to why people in the music industry were watching that case so closely.
I think GMs legal costs were 7 million pounds. Add to it the losses from career earnings. Here is an article that details the harrowing timeline of the case. Only George Michael will put himself through this kind of torture:
