Hov was also sued for copyright infringement in 2011. But no, not for this rhymes — for his book, Decoded. In a hand-written lawsuit filed June 13 in Los Angeles, writer Patrick White accused Jay Z of plagiarizing his words for his best-selling book. "In 2009, my personal computer was compromised, resulting in my personal work to be used in Jay Z's book 'Decoded' which was released in 2010," White claims in the suit. "The book contains various expressions/colors/phrases which correlates to my work. After contacting or attempting to contact the co-aurthor, I got no reply."
