Tyler Perry find himself back in court for copyright infringement
|Tyler Perry back in Court|
While this is the second copyright infringement lawsuit Perry has faced in the last year, several controversial accusations have overshadowed his reputation. In 2010, Johnny Tyrone Stringfield accused Perry of “revamping” his gospel song on TBS sitcom “Meet the Browns.” The song (allegedly written in 2008) appeared on Tyler’s show the following year.
Perry was also accused of using portions of the 1950 gospel song “When I Think of the Goodness of Jesus” without permission, in his film, Madea Goes to Jail, in 2009.
Fortunately, for the Alex Cross actor, Tyler Perry Studios and Lionsgate Entertainment, a New York federal judge dismissed the current copyright infringement claim.
