Kanye West Accused of Plagiarism to Tune of $2.five Million

A Hungarian rock star has filed suit against Kanye West for allegedly sampling his work with out permission.

Gabor Presser wrote the song “Pearls In Her Hair” as element of the band Omega in 1969, and claims it became “one of the most beloved pop songs ever in Hungary and across Eastern Europe.” In the lawsuit, which was filed in New York’s U.S. District Court, Presser asserts that one-third of “New Slaves” from West’s 2013 album Yeezus is made up of a sample from the track. He seeks a minimum of $2.5 million in damages.

In the suit, Presser claims that on May twenty, 2013, he acquired an e-mail from West’s management indicating that they wished to reach a fiscal agreement for licensing the sample. The suit claims Presser never ever responded. Later on, the Hungarian songwriter says he acquired a $10,000 check from West’s attorneys—which paperwork state he in no way cashed. “Kanye West knowingly and intentionally misappropriated [the] plaintiff’s composition,” the complaint mentioned. “After his theft was discovered, defendants refused to deal fairly with plaintiff.”
