Rapper and mogul Jay-Z is facing a lawsuit over his 2010 book Decoded. In a handwritten lawsuit, a man named Patrick White claims that the material is stolen property.
Decoded is part memoir and part lyrics with explanations. White claims that the Hova stole it from his laptop, which was the source of the material.
The computer was thefted in 2009 and White claims that Jay-Z failed to respond to his repeated requests to be credited appropriately. He is suing for copyright infringement and invasion of property. Really? Unbelievable.
In the suit, White states: "My personal computer was compromised, resulting in my personal work to be used in Jay-Z's book Decoded which was released in 2010. Various expressions/colors/phrases, which correlates to my work. After contacting or attempting to contact the co-author, I got no reply."
This sounds like B to the S.
What do you think of this lawsuit?
