Former NBA star Dennis Rodman said he has resolved a dispute with an industry group that accused him of using copyrighted music without permission at his California restaurant.

Rodman has agreed to pay licensing fees back to 2002 and has signed a new agreement with the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, his publicist, Shannon Barr, told the Los Angeles Times for Saturday's editions.

Rodman said he was unhappy about the ASCAP's rule that commercial establishments must pay fees for the use of any of its 8 million copyrighted songs and compositions performed live, played on jukeboxes or piped in from radio stations.
