Chance The Rapper Being Sued For Alleged  Copyright Infringement Over Song ‘Windows’

Chance The Rapper is being sued for alleged copyright infringement by a New York lawyer and jazz musician who claims he wrote the music included by Chance  in the song “Windows.”

Via the Chicago Sun Times:

Abdul Wali Muhammad, formerly known as Eric P. Saunders, filed his lawsuit Tuesday in federal court in Chicago. The eight-page complaint describes Muhammad as a jazz musician and composer who has performed with several musical artists and now practices criminal and civil rights law in New York.

The lawsuit also claims Muhammad composed the song “Bridge Through Time” and first registered the copyright for the composition on May 21, 1979. He is asking a federal judge to order Chance, or anyone working with him, to stop “copying, distributing, performing, selling or offering to sell Chance’s song ‘Windows.’”

No response yet from the rapper, whose real name is Chancellor Bennett or his lawyer yet.
