Dre + Xzibit Win Plagiarism Battle
A Philadelphia, Pennsylvania songwriter has been heavily penalised for bringing a false plagiarism claim against hip-hop heavyweights XZIBIT and DR DRE.
MICHAEL LOWE's copyright infringement lawsuit against the rappers was thrown out of a federal appeals court in Philadelphia on Wednesday (23MAR05), with a judge calling the action "frivolous".
Lowe claimed he created the beats for a track on Xzibit's RESTLESS album, which is credited to Dr Dre.
Lowe will now have to pay Dr Dre's legal fees and court costs.25/03/2005 20:18
