SAN FRANCISCO, CA. ( -- Kevin Federline and Thomas Dolby have reached an out-of-court settlement in their recent copyright infringement case. Federline, husband of pop singer Britney Spears, made an undisclosed cash payment to Dolby to compensate him for the illegal use of a sample from “She Blinded Me With Science" in the song “America's Most Wanted” which appeared on K-Fed's MySpace page this past Spring and received over half a million downloads.

When asked what he intends to do with the money from the settlement, British musician Dolby said: "I'm going to buy a new sailboat, find a quiet anchorage somewhere, make myself a cup of tea and write some brand new songs."

Thomas Dolby recently returned to the music business after 15 successful years as a technology enterpreneur in Silicon Valley. He releases a live CD and DVD The Sole Inhabitant on Nov 21st via and iTunes, and on November 28 will embark on a four-week North American tour with fellow electronica pioneer BT.
