Tinashe Sued for Copyright Infringement

Published: Thursday 21st May 2020 by Rashad

It looks like ‘Save Room For Us’ singer Tinashe will have to save room in her schedule for a court appearance thanks to a recently filed copyright infringement lawsuit.

Details inside:

Found aboard her critically acclaimed fourth studio album, 2019’s ‘Songs For You,’ ‘Save’ – a fan favorite from the set – was lifted as its fifth single in February 2020.

Three months later, the cut – assisted by DJ-producer MAKJ (born Mackenzie Johnson) – is at the center of a lawsuit from Australian producer Will K. (born Williams Kissas) who alleges he communicated with Johnson regarding the potential of collaborating with T ahead of ‘Save’s creation.

Now, Kissas claims the duo ran off with his song and are currently financially benefiting from his music.  Accusing them of copyright infringement and fraudulent misrepresentation, court documents reveal, Kissas is reportedly looking to halt future sales of the tune, have future profits redirected to him (alongside official producer credits), and even wants T and MAKJ to pay his attorney fees.

As of time reported, Tinashe has not responded to the report.

    Seems like it’s the producer being sued, not Tinashe.

    Check songs you didn’t write are “clean”. Only Bey gets away with not doing her due diligence. 👀

    “Ran off with his song” – so it was already written? So he registered the publishing and copyright then?? How you gonna *share* a song with producers you don’t know to the extent that they can “Run off with it”? Sounds like dude overshared without protecting his original creation 🤷🏾‍♂️
