Roc-A-Fella Sues to Stop Damon Dash From Selling Jay-Z's Reasonable Doubt Via NFT

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 18 –  Roc-A-Fella Records on Juneteenth filed a lawsuit against Damon Dash, to try to enjoin him from selling the copyright to Jay-Z's debut album Reasonable Doubt.   Photo here. Order to Show Cause on Patreon here

The complaint, filed past 7 am into the docket of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York where Inner City Press found and first reported it, says Dash "had planned to sell [it] at a SuperFarm Foundation online auction on June 23, 2021." 

   With that auction now canceled, the complaint continues, "Dash is currently frantically scouting for another venue to make the sale."  

 The accompanying draft Order to Show Cause would, if signed, enjoy Dash from "altering in any way, selling, assigning, pledging, encumbering, contracting with regard to, or in any way disposing of any property interest in Reasonable Doubt, including its copyright and including through any means, such as auctioning a non-fungible token ('NFT') reflecting such an interest." 

 The complaint notes that during the past year, the market for NFTs has exploded.

Now, this lawsuit, which Inner City Press will continue to follow. Watch this site.
