Kanye Wins Again; 'Stronger' Copyright Lawsuit Tossed

(AllHipHop News) Kanye West claimed another victory in court late last week, when a judge threw out a copyright infringement case against the rapper/producer. Kanye was sued in June of 2010 by songwriter/producer Vincent "Vince P." Peters, who claimed that he produced and wrote Kanye's hit single "Stronger" from the hit album Graduation. Peters claimed he gave the track to Kanye's longtime business associate John Monopoly in 2006, who played his version for Kanye. West has emerged victorious in the lawsuit, as Illinois Judge Virginia Kendall through the case out of court last week. Judge Kendall ruled that the songs were not substantially similar and dismissed Peters' case. The news comes on the heels that Kanye recently reached a confidential settlement with former Death Row Records' mogul Marion "Suge" Knight, who sued the Chicago artist after he was shot at a pre-VMA party in 2005.
