Mac Miller Slapped With Second 10 Million Dollar Lawsuit

Mac Miller is gonna have to tour twice as much as he is right now if both of these lawsuits work out against him.  After getting sued for 10 Million by Lord Finesse for the song ‘Kool Aid & Frozen Pizza’, he is now being sued for a sample he used on his Macadelic mixtape.  The sample is from an artist named Warm Speakers and its from his song ‘Fuck ‘Em All’.  Read the official quote from Warm Speakers below.

Here we go again: Mac Miller’s being sued for $10 million over a sample used on his Macadelic mixtape. The suit was filed by an artist named Patrick Berlinquette, who also goes by Warm Speakers. He claims that his song “The World Around You,” which was copyrighted in 2011, was stolen by Miller for use on Macadelic’s “Fuck ‘Em All.”

In the complaint, Berlinquette states that “[Miller] uses other people’s music because it’s easier, cheaper, and faster than creating his own.” It continues: “Miller seeks to capitalize on the common misconception in Copyright Law that people whose music he takes have no remedy if he gives their music away for free.”

Berlinquette outlines in the complaint, which also names Rostrum Records and DatPiff, that he is suing for willful infringement and violation of Copyright Law and New York’s General Business Law. He is also seeking a permanent injunction on the track.

Miller actually gave Berlinquette a shout out about the sample this past June on twitter.
