On Tuesday, a man named Demetrius Orlandus Proctor filed a lawsuit claiming he’s held the copyright to the music and lyrics since 2011. He included in his filing a certificate for a copyright to a 2000 project titled ‘Frisky Vol. 1 to 30 (Tapes),’ though its connection to ‘Billionaire’ is unclear.
Proctor is asking that all copies of his recording that the defendants may have downloaded onto any computer without his authorization be destroyed.
Aside from Travie and Bruno, the lawsuit also names the other writers of ‘Billionaire’ — Bruno’s collaborators Philip Lawrence and Ari Levine — as defendants.
