Jay Z, Damon Dash Win Lawsuit Over Roc-A-Fella Logo

Sep 28, 2016

Jay Z, Damon Dash Win Lawsuit Over Roc-A-Fella Logo Judge dismisses Dwayne Walker’s $7 million breach of contract and copyright infringement claim Jay Z Photo by Ray Mickshaw/WireImage In 2012, clothing designer Dwayne Walker sued Jay Z, Damon Dash, Kareem “Biggs” Burke, and Roc-A-Fella (as well as UMG and Island Def Jam) for $7 million over breach of contract and copyright infringement. Walker claimed that he created the Roc-A-Fella logo  and was owed royalties for its use. Yesterday, a U.S. District Court judge dismissed the lawsuit, Reuters reports . Walker plans to appeal. Counter to Walker’s claim that he created the artwork in 1995, Jay Z and Dash said that Roc-A-Fella in-house art director Adrien Vargas created the logo. Walker claimed that he had a contract with Dash, but was unable to provide a physical copy of the agreement. “This leaves only plaintiff's own self-serving testimony that he drafted the contract, that he and Dash signed it, and that he lost track of it in 1998,” the judge wrote. “This testimony alone is not enough.” Artists In This Story
