Men At Work have been ordered to pay 5 per cent of royalties for plagiarising part of their 1980s hit Down Under.
In February the Federal Court ruled the iconic Aussie band plagiarised part of the song, which was penned in 1979 but only achieved worldwide success after a flute riff was introduced to the track two years later.
Larrikin Music said the band stole the riff from the children's song Kookaburra Sits In The Old Gum Tree.
Kookaburra Sits In The Old Gum Tree was written by Melbourne teacher Marion Sinclair for a Girl Guides jamboree in 1934 and has been sung by generations of Australian children ever since.
Larrikin owns the rights to the song and has been seeking compensation from Men At Work frontman Colin Hay and fellow songwriter Ron Strykert as well as Sony BMG and EMI.
At one point, Larrikin sought up to 60 per cent of the song's profits as compensation.
Today a judge described that request as "excessive".
Instead Men At Work has been ordered to pay Larrikin 5 per cent of future profits, as well as profits dating back to 2002.
