Jay-Z sued for alleged plagiarism in "Decoded".

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES (FEBRUARY 8, 2009) (HOLLYWOODTV) - Jay-Z was sued in federal court last week by someone claiming Jay-Z "compromised" his computer in 2009 and plagiarized his unpublished writing in his 2010 memoir 'Decoded'. The book "contains various expressions/colors/phrases which correlates to my work," said Patrick White (plaintiff).

White is a busy man, as he also sued the Nike shoe company on June 13, claiming the idea for the "Kobe System" marketing campaign was his originally.
