Jay Z in copyright lawsuit
The singer has been sued by author Patrick White of stealing portions of his writing and using them without his consent on Jay Z`s 2010 song book "Decoded". White claimed his laptop was stolen in 2009.
"My personal computer was compromised, resulting in my personal work to be used in Jay-Z`s book Decoded which was released in 2010," he explained in the hand-written lawsuit," White wrote in a letter, reports aceshowbiz.com.
"The book [Decoded] contains various expressions/colours/phrases, which correlates to my work. After contacting or attempting to contact the co-author, I got no reply," he said.
White filed the legal documents in United States District Court June 13. He`s suing for copyright infringement and invasion of property.
