Copyright Infringement

Anna Tingley. Billboard. Chance the Rapper Sued for Copyright Infringement. September 13, 2017. https://www.billboard.com/articles/news/7964711/chance-the-rapper-sued-copyright-infringement.

 

This is a good example of copyright infringment because a man named Muhammad claims that he never gave Chance the Rapper the right to use a sample of his music and Chance the Rapper is now profiting from his original work. The source also gives information about the legal consequences of using someone else’s work and not giving them credit or not having them give you permission to use their work, such as going to court and being sued and the damages can cost a lot of money.
