Composer Says Rapper Sampled ''Iron Man'' Theme Illegally
6:00AM ET July 6th, 2011
Contributor : Martin James
A Rocky Williform Company

Ghostface Killah Faces Lawsuit

Rapper Ghostface Killah is being sued for the unauthorized use of a sample on his 2000 album Supreme Clientele. Composer Jaques "Jack" Urbont is suing the colorful Wu-Tang Clan rapper for the illegal use of a sample from his copyrighted theme music to the 60s television cartoon “Iron Man.” The theme appears several times on Supreme Clientele.

Urbont owns the exclusive rights and says the song was used without being cleared by the label or properly credited in the album’s liner notes.

"The defendants fraudulently concealed their use of the 'Iron Man Theme' on Supreme Clientele," the lawsuit says. "For instance, the liner notes of Supreme Clientele do not give any indication that Urbont's sound recording or compositions are contained on the album...Urbont is over 80 years old and would not normally encounter the defendants rap music in the ordinary course of his dealings in the music industry or otherwise."

Urbont is seeking an undisclosed amount in damages--reportedly millions. Producer RZA and Razor Sharp Records are also named in the suit.

You can't use peoples work without permission and if the old man didn't sign off, he's got a lot of money coming.

Law suit will pass on his legal descendants anyway.



SMH @ Epic & Razor Sharp for not clearing this sample.

You can get away with it on small independent releases, but with anything that's gonna sell 20,000+, you should get all the samples cleared.

I remember hearing that Rawkus never bothered getting "Simon Says" cleared, which is ridiculous.

If he personally loses money out of this, Ghost should smack fuck out of whoever was running his business affairs at the time.

Fucking greed. Of course you can't use other people's work without permission, but most of this lawsuits are not about artists and their integrity and work, it's about large companies being greedy. That's why all of this is bullshit, but no shame in the game i guess.

You guys are surprised the sample wasn't cleared? Don't you remember why Soul Controller was taken off of Ironman?

What I want to know is; who tipped off the old bastard about it; I am pretty sure he is not sitting around listening to hiphop music and happened across his music being sampled; I say we find out who squealed on Ghostface and jump him; who is with me?; we can meet up at a Starbuck's near the old man's house and put together a plan to take him out l.o.l.; just imagine that; a bunch of Euros and a Black guy (me) collaborating to silence him once and for all.
