Jay-Z wins lawsuit over logo Roc-A-Fella
Rapper Jay-Z is by the court, prevailed in a case over the origin of the logo of his record company Roc-A-Fella.
That reports Reuters Tuesday. Costume designer Dwayne Walker, who the case in 2012 filed, claiming that the design in 1995 he made for a vinyl record formed the basis for the logo. This would be enshrined in a contract.
According to Jay-Z, fellow Roc-A-Fella founder, Damon Dash, and parent company Universal Music Group is the logo not by Walker. The judge let us know that, in addition to Walker, only two others of the existence of the contract fails. That makes the evidence is not strong enough.
Also, would Walker have to have a long wait for the claim to have submitted. Walker demanded seven million dollars in damages. His lawyer has let know to appeal.
Roc-A-Fella was founded in 1995. Among others, Kanye West, and rapper Ol’Dirty Bastard brought music from the label, now part of Def Jam.
