p2pnet view Music:- Brooke Hogan, daughter of wrestling star Hulk Hogan, is being sued for $200,000 and “punitive damages” for alleged copyright violation.
In 2006 she and Sobe Entertainment asked Jam 2 owners Jammy James and Camar Doyal, “to write music for Hogan’s upcoming album”, says the Courthouse News Service.
James and Doyal submitted a CD, and Hogan “agreed to pay and credit them if she ended up using their music”, it says.
She opted for their Come On, Come On and sent Jam 2 a “rough version of the song, overlaid with her own lyrics and re-titled ‘Trust Me’,” with Sobe and Hogan again telling Jam 2 “they would pay for the use of the song, Jam 2 claims”, says the story, adding:
“But Sobe and Fontana Distribution released Hogan’s album, ‘The Redemption,’ in June 2009 without crediting or paying Jam 2, the lawsuit states.
“Another Sobe artist, Trevor ‘Baby G’ James, is allegedly credited with producing ‘Trust Me’.”
