Uh-oh! With fame and success comes lawsuits!
Jimmy from Degrassi Drake has been sued by Playboy Enterprises for what they claim is a copyright infringement in his breakthrough single “Best I Ever Had!”
The lawsuit, filed against Drake, Cash Money Records, Universal Music Group and Universal Music Group Distribution, asserts that the song illegally samples Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynolds‘ 1975 song “Fallin’ In Love,” the rights of which are owned by Playboy.
According to court documents, “Best I Ever Had” has been “an enourmous commercial success” and continues:
“Each Defendant either knew, or should have reasonably known, that the sound recording [‘Fallin’ in Love‘] was protected by copyright. Each Defendant continues to infringe upon Plaintiff’s right in and to the copyrighted sound recording.”
What do U think?? Is Drake in the wrong or is Playboy’s lawsuit unjustified??
