Kanye West Wins $500,000 Infringement Lawsuit
Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.31.2014



Radar Online reports that Kanye West has earned a big legal victory in a $500,000 lawsuit. The plaintiff wasn't able to locate West to serve him his papers. Robert Poindexter of the 1970s band The Persuaders sued West in March 2012 claiming that he sampled his 1972 song "Trying Girls Out" for "Girls Girls Girls" without. He failed to serve West after 20 months. The case was "dismissed without prejudice for failure to prosecute" on January 9 in a New York federal court.

Poindexter claimed in the suit that West "willfully infringed the copyright for private and financial gain by selling and distributing an untold amount of physical and digital copies of the illegal version (mixed tapes/street albums) to the general public on internet downloads and through the mail" in the "Girls Girls Girls" song that was featured on Jay Z's 2001 album The Blueprint. After several extensions West still couldn't be located. Poindexter even claimed that he used US Marshals and private service companies to try to find him.
