One of the biggest names in dance music, David Guetta, is being sued for $6 million for alleged copyright infringement. Andre Dudek filed a federal lawsuit against Guetta, Sam Martin, Warner Music and Atlantic Records. Dudek claims that Guetta illegally sampled his song called “Illuminations,” which was used for Guetta and Martin’s 2014 hit song, “Dangerous”.
Dudek claims that not only did Guetta profit from the sales of his record, but he gained notoriety and business opportunities from it, referencing the song’s use in a T-Mobile ad. He filed for 6$ million in damages along with an injunction to stop any further sales or distribution of the allegedly infringing song. He claims that his song is identical to Guetta’s song including the written version.
At this moment is unclear whether David Guetta has responded to the lawsuit or what the result of it will be. We’re currently searching for a version of Dudek’s song.
