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
Diagnosis: Just not Justin's week....
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
What the what? Lady Gaga's personal and official youtube account has been taken down by youtube. The reason? 3rd party copyright infringement claims.
Usually, Gaga posts her own TV appearances like she did for the French TV shows she was on last week. The reason? So blogs such as drfunkenberry.com can share the links and footage for her fans to see on youtube and here.
From what I can see, she never posts other people's videos, only her own. So, it must be the TV shows she is appearing on claiming they own the copyright and not Lady Extravaganza herself. The fans suffer here more than anyone.
So we ask you, who owns the copyright of the performance; the TV show from which the artist appeared on or the artist themselves?-Dr.FB
Diagnosis: A 3rd Party IS Too Many Parties!
