Baby & Cash Money Records Sued for Copyright Infringement

Bryan “Baby” Williams, co-founder of Cash Money Records, is being sued by a number of music publishing firms for allegedly infringing on their copyrighted material. According to the New Orleans Times-Picayune, the suit was filed on October 29 in U.S. District Court in New Orleans on behalf of WB Music Corp., Warner-Tamerlane Publishing Corp., Cotillion Music Inc., Noontime Tunes and W.B.M. Music Corp. The complaint claims that albums from Baby, Lil Wayne, the Big Tymers and other Cash Money artists contained copyrighted material that was used without licensing agreements; and that Cash Money failed to pay royalties to the companies named. The suit does not list any of the actual song titles. The suit states that Cash Money made a single payment of $400,000, but failed to perform “appropriate accounting” to the companies in order for them to determine how much more money they were owed. Lawyers for the plaintiffs attempted to serve Baby with a copy of the lawsuit at the Cash Money offices in New Orleans on December 3, but the company no longer operates out of that location. The suit seeks an unspecified amount of damages, plus interest and attorney fees.

    baby is like the guy who max’s out his credit card to show off….the bill’s just keep piling up.

  • jollyrench

    Why is it Baby’s responsibility to figure out how much money he owes these people? If these corporations really cared about the money wouldn’t it be worth their while to figure out how much money Baby owes them?

    • iLL

      yes and no jolly..I think in the cases of these record companies; they would prefer you forget you owe them and when you blow up then they come ah knocking so they can tack on the interest. Big fish eat little fish and so on.

  • PoPo

    This bozo is a real clown. He is on video showing stacks of hidden money, why don’t the feds just lock this criminal up.

    BIG UP TO NEW ORLEANS, CASH MONEY AND YOUNG MONEY.

    WHEN OUR HIP HOP GENERATION BREAKS THRU THE BARRIER OF POVERTY, DEMOLISHING THE GLASS HOUSE OF EXPECTION OF FAILURE BUILT BY THIS CROOKED SOCIETY, THEN WE BECOME TARGETS OF FEDS DISGUISED AS REGULAR PEOPLE WITH REGULAR AGENDAS…I SAY THIS TO SAY THAT WE SHOULD LOOK WITH IN THE SITUATION CONCERNING THESE LAWSUITS AND JUDGE RIGHTEOUSLY. SEE THRU THE EYES OF GOD…BE LEAD BY THE EYE OF GOD. I PRAY JUSTICE FOR CASH MONEY….NOT AS THIS CROOKED JUDICIAL SYSTEM KNOWS IT …BUT AS THE TRUTH KNOWS IT. THE HIP HOP POLICE ARE MAD BECAUSE WE REFUSE TO LET OUR UNDERGROUND BE FLOODED BY THERE TACTICS…OUR MIXTAPE KINGDOM LIVE ON.

    R.I.P TO BABY AND MANNIE’S SISTERS.
    ONE LOVE,

    It’s uncomfortable, but I ought to check with you something urgent . I aware with the fact that the blue small pill that I’m using is not good for the kidneys and not good for your health by any means. When I was younger, nothing was disturbing me, but now I am worried. Whenever when I use it, I feel a fear…. I am asking myself every now and then, why there’s no such product for women? :)) So, I need your advice – is there a product that I can use as an alternative? I suppose that this question is important not only for me but all men, and mainly for my friends. I prefer to stay unnamed.
