50 Cent Lays Claim To Young Buck's Intellectual Property

50 Cent Lays Claim To Young Buck's Intellectual Property

50 Cent is asking a block on the sale of Young Buck's intellectual property, as he says his label, G-Unit, owns Buck's recordings.

As we previously reported, Young Buck's intellectual property was going up for grabs due to the rapper's bankruptcy. 

Now The Wall Street Journal reports that 50 Cent, who originally signed Buck in 2004, is laying claim to Young Buck's assets.

50 says their still-standing record agreement covers pretty much all of Young Buck's intellectual property, and so his lawyers are asking the judge in Buck's case to block the sale until they can figure out what Young Buck is and is not allowed to sell.

"The creditors are left with no choice but to file this opposition to ensure that the trustee is not seeking to adversely affect the creditors’ rights in assets that they own, or in which they have rights and interests," Fif's attorneys wrote in court papers filed last week.

50 Cent claims that his label owns 100% of all rights of the recordings Buck did for G-Unit, and exclusive rights "tp distribute, reproduce, and authorize adaptations and all performances in whatever form."
