EXCLUSIVE: Jay-Z Sued Over Book “Decoded”

(AllHipHop News) Mogul Jay-Z has been hit with a lawsuit over his hit 2010 book “Decoded.”

According to a lawsuit filed on June 13, Patrick White claims that portions of “Decoded” were somehow stolen from him.

The lawsuit, which was filed in United States District Court, Central District, claims that White’s laptop was stolen in 2009.

“In 2009, my personal computer was compromised, resulting in my personal work to be used in Jay-Z’s book Decoded which was released in 2010,” White claims.

In the hand-written lawsuit, White claims he was shocked when he saw that portions of a book he had been working on were strikingly similar to portions of “Decoded.”

“The book contains various expressions/colors/phrases, which correlates to my work,” White alleges. “After contacting or attempting to contact the co-author, I got no reply.”

White is suing for copyright infringement and invasion of property.

In addition to Jay-Z, author Dream Hampton and Random House are also named in the lawsuit.
