A Judge in the United States has dismissed a copyright case against Shawn Carter better known as Jay Z and Timothy Mosley better known as Timbaland over his track ‘Big Pimpin’.
The rapper was accused of not getting permission to use a flute sample from a track written by an Egyptian composer Baligh Hamdi in 1957.
Jay Z and Timbaland had said they believed they had a valid licence to sample the flute notes which was used throughout ‘Big Pimpin’, an anthem to a promiscuous lifestyle that became the first major hit single for Jay Z.
It is the second high-profile musical copyright case dismissed, after a federal jury ruled earlier this year that Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams plagiarized Marvin Gaye in their hit Blurred Lines.
