The Queens In Court Today Over Copyright
A couple weeks ago, the two queens were sued by a Hungarian singer who claims they stole her song and changed it to the popular song "Drunk In Love" which is performed by Queen B and produced by Queen N. Today, the singer flew down to the U.S to take the queens to court and they were both seen entering the courthouse at 8am this morning side by side avoiding all paparazzi crews and news camera's. The queens are accused of copyright and damages in the amount of 300 million dollars each (the self called "king" has been dropped from the suit due to the courts saying that just as a "feature" he is legally entitled not to be held responsible, the only responsible parties are the creator and producer, which translates to NiNi and B" They both were in a New York courthouse for over 2 hours and when they came out they refused any access to them so no details are known right now about what happened or what the judge said, but they both seemed to look upset exiting the courthouse. There still isn't much info on this yet, since neither queen is talking right now, so stay tuned. P.S Tomorrow is NiNi's huge NYE party, didn't really have to say that, just wanted to :) *UPDATE* Sources close to both queens say that, the singer has reduced her original lawsuit amount of 300 million dollars to just 30 million dollars and she is requesting the song not be played anymore. Its said that after a jury listened to the 2 songs, it was determined that many parts of her song was copied and since neither queen had any permission from her, they were found guilty of copyright, although they argued that they recycled, they didn't steal, but the judge didn't go for it (NiNi has been in lots of trouble lately, and many law officials want to see her locked up so she isn't getting any breaks from there) and the judge awarded the Hungarian singer with winning her lawsuit. The judge ordered that both queens pay 30 million a piece to her no later then January 12th 2015, they also can not perform or promote the song anywhere, and radio stations are limited to playing the song. This is the first time that NiNi has successfully been beaten for copyright, and we can imagine she is not happy about it, and neither are her fans. The Beyhive and the N's have been viciously attacking the judge and the singer who sued them all day due to their disagreement with the Judge's decision and the singer has many death threats aimed at her, but it is said she hurried back to her home country quickly as these threats started coming to her. NiNi and B have not been available for comment. Sorry queens :( hopefully the party tomorrow will cheer you guys up :) Click here to read full details about what went down at the trial.....
