Seems like a lot of people are going after Mac Miller these days for sampling their songs without permission. This time we have a man by the name of Patrick Berlinquette aka “Warm Speakers” suing Mac for sampling his music on the song “The World Around You” which was on Macadellic.
In the complaint, Berlinquette says “[Miller] uses other people’s music because it’s easier, cheaper, and faster than creating his own.” Adding: “Miller seeks to capitalize on the common misconception in Copyright Law that people whose music he takes have no remedy if he gives their music away for free.”
We’ll see how this one plays out since the only real case is that he may have used the song to gain fame since the mixtape was put out for free. Hopefully Mac doesn’t get sued out of his career as he’s already facing another $10 million lawsuit.
