David Guetta hit with $6 million lawsuit for alleged copyright infringement
EDM’s king of pop collaborations, David Guetta, is used to receiving international accolades. This time around he’s facing a $6 million dollar lawsuit. TheJasmineBrand.com reports that the 47-year-old producer is being sued by 80s artist Andre Dudek who claims that Guetta’s worldwide hit “Dangerous” is identical to his track entitled “Illuminations” which he wrote back in 1980 but didn’t have the composition copyrighted until 2015.
Dudek claims not only did Guetta profit millions of dollars off the record hitting number one in over a dozen countries, but he also gained business opportunities with T-Mobile after the track was featured in one of their advertisements.
Dudek filed a federal lawsuit against Guetta, singer Sam Martin, Warner Music and Atlantic Records and is demanding a court-ordered injunction against them from being able to further distribute and profit from the track.
Hopefully Guetta’s defense team is made of Titanium.
