Setlist: Top ten legal battles – The Jay-Z moral rights case

By and | Published on Monday 16 March 2020


It’s the seventh in our series of special editions of Setlist looking at some of our favourite music industry legal battles of all time. CMU’s Andy Malt and Chris Cooke discuss the case filed against Jay-Z by the family of Baligh Hamdi, who argued that the rapper had infringed the the late Egyptian film composer’s moral rights – an element of copyright law that we rarely have the opportunity to talk about but opens up some interesting debates. Setlist is sponsored by 7digital.
