An Indian music and film company addressed legal papers to The Game and Timbaland for copyright infringement in the former's song 'Put You on the Game'.
An Indian music and film company called Saregama India Ltd has filed a law suit to The Game and Timbaland. Both hip-hop icons are accused of copyright infringement for using the company's song without permission.
The Game's 'Put You on The Game' is claimed in the papers to have sampled one of Saregama's song. The track that was produced by Timbaland and Danja, is taken from The Game's 2005 studio album 'The Documentary'.
The company also addressed the legal papers to Interscope, Universal Music Group, Aftermath Entertainment, G-Unit Records, Czar Entertainment, Timbaland's Virginia Beach Music and The Game's Black Wall Street. The company that filed the papers in Manhattan Federal Court, New York is seeking an undisclosed amount.
Saregama, formerly known as The Gramaphone Company of India covers up to 50 per cent of all the music recorded in India. It famously battled Dr. Dre in a 2002 law suit for illegally utilizing Indian artist Lata Mangeshkar's voice on the rapper's hit 'Addictive'.
