Shouldn't take what isn't yours!
Snoop is being sued by jazz musician Michael Henderson for sampling one of his songs. Michael says Snoop took selections from his Do It All album without his permission to use on his track Flashbacks.
Michael is also suing rapers Murs and 9th Wonder for the same thing. And he is hitting them HARD!
Michael is claiming "statutory damages" for the alleged infringement as well as any profits made from the songs. He's also requesting that all the defendants be stopped from manufacturing, distributing and selling the works further.
We hope this guy has a good lawyer or this could be over really quickly.
If we know Snoop, he'll get the best of the best to defend himself and there won't be ANYONE that can stop him!
Still, stealing is wrong. Maybe throw the guys a couple of bucks and a byline credit to smooth things over?
