The runner-up of 'American Idol' season 8 is listed as a sole defendant in the lawsuit tied to a work called 'Beg for Mercy'.
Adam Lambert is sued by Colwel Platinum Entertainment Inc. for "a 504 Copyright infringement case." The lawsuit is tied to a song called "Beg for Mercy" which he reportedly worked together with his guitarist Monte Pittman before he took part in "American Idol" two years ago.
However, a copyright registration was lodged in May 2009 for another work with the same title, "Beg for Mercy", according to lalate.com. In the paper, Wilshire Records Limited is listed as the claimant "by written agreement."
The complaint for the alleged copyright infringement was filed on November 1 in the California Central District Court, Los Angeles. The legal paper listed the "Whataya Want From Me" singer as a sole defendant. There hasn't been any comment from his camp regarding the issue.
