Rolling Stones, Lil Wayne settle lawsuit

Posted on

The Rolling Stones’ publishing company has settled its lawsuit against Lil Wayne. ABKCO Music Inc. sued the rapper and his label last July, alleging that “Playing With Fire,” a song from his bestselling album Tha Carter III, infringed on the copyright of the Rolling Stones’ 1965 hit “Play With Fire.” According to a statement issued last night by ABKCO, “All parties expressed themselves satisfied with the amicable settlement.” The specific terms of the settlement are being kept under a confidentiality agreement, but it seems likely that future pressings of Tha Carter III will not contain “Playing With Fire.” The song was already removed from all digital outlets prior to this settlement.
