UPDATED: Kanye West Not Sure Who To Sue Over "Coinye" E-Currency
Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.14.2014



Update: MTV reports that Kanye West has won his battle against the makers of the "Coinye West" virtual currency. The seven anonymous coders behind "Coinye" have posted a message on their website (which is now closed), with the message: "COINYE IS DEAD. You win, Kanye."


Original: TMZ reports that Kanye West has filed legal documents in New York against the makers of the e-currency "Coinye West", but he's not sure who to sue over the matter. West wants the makers of Coinye to shut down marketing and sale of the virtual money, which can be used to buy goods and services through online stores.

The coins feature a South Park like portrayal of West with sunglasses. It went on sale on January 7. West said: "With each day that passes, [my] reputation is irreparably harmed by the continued use of the Coinye West marks."

West has requested an injunction against several companies he thinks are responsible. The problem is that with one exception, the people behind the companies are able to hide who they are through online privacy services. However, Amazon.com is one of the defendants because Amazon provides web hosting services to the websites behind Coinye, because Amazon has not removed the websites. West is also suing for part of the profits from the currency.
