Jake Paul is accused of ripping of a group of music producers by stealing their work and passing it off as his own.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, music producers Erik Belz, Jonathan Pakfar and Shane Eli Abrahams are suing Jake and his company Team 10 Inc.
The music producers accuse Paul of ripping off their work on his 2017 Christmas-inspired song “Litmas.”
The producers say they created a song titled “Bad Santa” released in 2015. They accuse Jake of using their track on “Litmas” without permission or paying a dime.
The suit states,” Plaintiffs’ master recording and composition is the backing track for the entire song Litmas. Defendants have not acknowledged Plaintiffs’ contribution nor obtained permission to use their copyrighted master recording and composition, nor provided them with compensation. While Defendants and others have received many accolades and substantial profits from Litmas, Plaintiffs have received nothing – no acknowledgement, no credit, no remuneration of any kind.”
