Chance the Rapper Sues Bootleggers for Copyright Infringement

Grammy award winning performer Chance the Rapper has filed a copyright infringement lawsuit through his company in the Northern District of Illinois Court. The selling of merchandise not authorized by Chance the Rapper is damaging to his brand and will cause Chance to “suffer irreparable harm” at a financial amount that is “presently incalculable.”  

Multiple John Doe’s have been sued because they “have engaged, and will continue to engage, in the unauthorized manufacture, distribution, and sale of Infringing Merchandise” featuring known Chance the Rapper art outside of his shows. He has asked for an injunction to prevent this.
