A man named Patrick White is suing Jay-Z for copyright infringement, claiming that his computer’s privacy was compromised. He claims that, in his book “decoded”, Jay-Z used “various expressions/colors/phrases” which are similar to his same work that was on the compromised computer.
White claims that he attempted to contact Jay-Z and none of his communications got a reply.
Jay-Z’s book, “Decoded”, which was released in 2010, made New York Times Best selling list so one has to wonder if this is a valid complaint or if Mr. White is just trying to get paid.
According to AllHipHop.com, White is also suing Jay-Z’s co-author, Dream Hampton and publishing firm Random House.
