Two music companies are locked in a multi-million pound court battle over the rights to 13 Bob Marley songs - including the iconic No Woman, No Cry.

A judge began hearing legal argument in the dispute, involving Cayman Music and Blue Mountain Music at a hearing in London today.

It is believed the trial will end later this week.
