Yellowcard’s Copyright-Infringement Lawsuit Against Juice Wrld Delayed by Judge
Yellowcard’s lawsuit against Juice Wrld, that stated that the rapper’s song”Lucid Dreams” infringed in their 2006 tune”Holly Wood Died,” was stayed by United States District Judge Consuelo B. Marshall.
Based on Pitchfork, which mentioned legal records, Marshall arranged a stay before a representative for Juice WRLD’s property may be appointed.
Yellowcard registered a $15 million dollar lawsuit in October from the rapper, co-writer Taz Taylor, manufacturer Nick Mira and their publishers, asserting Juice Wrld’s hit”Lucid Dreams” infringed upon their 2006 tune”Holly Wood Died.”
But, the rapper died of an accidental overdose on December 8, in the age of only 21. Last month, the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office ruled the origin of the cause of death for an unintentional overdose, discovering that he”died as a consequence of both oxycodone and codeine toxicity.”
The day following his passing, Yellowcard extended the deadline for defendants to respond to the lawsuits against this afternoon, December 9, before February 4. Marshall has set a deadline of April 13 to get a status update on the probate proceedings, according to the documents.

Parties named in the lawsuit also incorporate publisher BMG Rights Management, the Grade A Productions record label, Interscope Records, and many others.
Cited from the suit is a meeting at which Juice WRLD (who had been created Jarad Higgins) talks about the effect of Fall Out Boy’s 2005 album”From Under the Cork Tree,” that was produced by Neal Avron, who also produced”Holly Wood Died.”
“Lucid Dreams” samples Sting’s”Shape of My Heart,” that is credited, but the litigation asserts that”Holly Wood Died” is used in a comparable fashion, but the rapper chose”to infringe the First Work.”
“This wasn’t a litigation the men wanted to document,” explained Richard Busch, a lawyer for Yellowcard, who watched a massive copyright-infringement success in 2015 when he represented the Marvin Gaye property at the”Blurred Lines” the event. “They put each the parties notice to attempt and solve it. That note was pretty much discounted leaving them without a true option. As mentioned in the Complaint, this isn’t only a generic Emo Rap tune, but is still a clear copy of important original compositional components of’Holly Wood Died’ in many respects. Beyond this, everything we must say is at the Complaint.”
Initially released on SoundCloud at June of 2017,”Lucid Dreams” was released almost a year after Juice World’s debut album”Goodbye & Good Riddance.”
