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."
