Lawsuit has been ongoing for four years
A $7 million (£5.37 million) lawsuit against Jay Z and his former label partners that accused them of breach of contract and copyright infringement over the logo for Roc-A-Fella Records, has been dismissed.
Clothing designer Dwayne Walker filed the suit in 2012 in which he claimed he created the artwork in 1995 depicting a vinyl record that served as the basis for the Roc-A-Fella logo.
Jay Z, co-founder Damon Dash, Roc-A-Fella and its parent company, Universal Music Group, denied Walker’s claims, saying the logo was designed by an in-house art director.
Walker also claimed that he and Dash signed a contract that entitled him to royalties from the logo, but U.S. District Judge Andrew Carter has now ruled there was little evidence to prove the document existed, reports Reuters.
