Timbaland Accused of Illegally Sampling a Song


Timbaland


Musician David Cortopassi sued the producer for using a part of his song 'Spazz' for 'Throw It on Me' without consent but has now settled it for undisclosed amount.

Timbaland has settled a legal battle with a composer who accused the superproducer of sampling a controversial track without permission. Musician David Cortopassi wrote the song "Spazz", which was originally recorded by The Elastik Band in the 1960s and was banned for its tasteless content.

Timbaland used part of the track in "Throw It on Me", his 2007 collaboration with The Hives, and Cortopassi launched a copyright infringement lawsuit. AllHipHop.com reports the pair has now agreed a settlement. No further details were given about the terms of the deal as WENN went press.

Timbaland has moved on from "Shock Value" to "Shock Value II" in December 2009. Unlike the first installment, the second one did not receive a commercial success despite the guest star appearances. The album only peaked at number 36 on Billboard Hot 200.
