Grg Vs. Timbaland legal update

CHIPFLIP writes:

GRG and his crew were making three claims: sampling, performance rights, producer rights. The court did however only consider one of these: the performance rights. According to them GRG’s cover was not unique enough to grant him any kind of authorship rights, so the case was basically lost. This meant that they didn’t have to consider whether the song was sampled or not.

Hopefully they can work out some kind of compensation from the douche who exclaimed “it’s a video game, jerk”.
