50 Cent Hit With Copyright Lawsuit Over I Get Money was a top story in December. Here it is again as we recap 2010: 50 Cent proclaimed "I Get Money" with his rap hit of the same name and it looks like he might have to share some of that money if he loses a new copyright infringement lawsuit. The plaintiff attorneys Marks & Klein, LLP issued the following:

A copyright infringement lawsuit has been filed over rights to one of the biggest hit rap songs of recent years, "I Get Money," which was originally released as a single by recording artist Curtis Jackson, a/k/a 50 Cent, and subsequently re-released by various artists as a remix.

Tyrone Simmons, a/k/a "Caliber," an aspiring 28-year-old rap artist from Atlanta, Ga., has filed suit in the United States District Court, Eastern District of New York seeking damages for copyright infringement and other claims. Specifically, Simmons alleges that he purchased an exclusive license for all of the rights to use, record, publish, re-produce, perform and/or sell the "I Get Money" instrumental beat, from which the song is titled, from its producer William Stanberry, a/k/a Apex, and that Stanberry and others, including 50 Cent, knowingly infringed upon his rights. - more on this story
