Kanye West, who was facing lawsuit from a man called Vincent Peters who claims that Ye stole his idea for his hit song "Stronger", cited Nietzshe as his influence for the song idea in a brief his legal team submitted last week.
Kanye, claims that he got the idea for "Stronger" from the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche's dictum-- “That which does not kill us makes us stronger." Both Peters and Ye's song are based off this idea. Kanye's attorney said the following on it, "it would create a dangerously low threshold for establishing copyright protection over otherwise commonplace words and phrases."
Peters claims that Kanye's 2007 track borrowed lines from his own 2006 track which had the same name. According to Peters he gave the track to Kanye's manager, John Monopoly, who then passed it on to Kanye.
The original case though was dismissed earlier this year.
