Justin Bieber and Usher are being sued for $10 million dollars for copyright infringement.

Devin Copeland aka Del Rico and songwriter Mareio Overton filed a lawsuit against Bieber and his mentor Usher for $10 million.

It is for the song "Someone To Love" which Copeland wrote a song with the same title back in 2008. Copeland says there are too many similarities between his version and Justin's so he sued.-DocFB

Kanye West & Jay Z settled a lawsuit over their song "The Joy" on the "Watch The Throne" Cd which used a sample of "Different Strokes" by Sly Johnson uncredited and unpaid for.

Kanye tried to get the sample for his "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy," but didn't.  Then the song ended up on "Watch The Throne" without permission.  Sly noticed and went after Kanye and Jay Z for using it.

Kanye and Jay Z have recently come to terms with Sly reaching a settlement and Johnson has since dropped the lawsuit.-DocFB
