Legal Dispute Breaks Out Over DMX's Latest Album 'Undisputed'

Added: 22 September 2012 | Read 637 times

A legal dispute is broken out over the rights to distribute the latest album by Hip-Hop superstar DMX. Seven Arts Entertainment recently filed a lawsuit against music industry executives Craig Sussman and Charles Gullo, of In The Zone Entertainment.

The lawsuit claims Sussman and Gullo are interfering with Seven Arts’ rights to the Undisputed album by DMX, since the pair are also claiming distribution rights to the release

According to lawsuit, Seven Arts purchased the rights to an album titled Redemption of the Beast in February from the original rights holder, who is not named in the complaint.

Sussman and Gullo had been hired by the first owner of the album to distribute DMX’s release via their label In The Zone Entertainment Group (ITZ), but ITZ never follow through with paying almost $500,000 in fees associated with obtaining the rights to the album.

Seven Arts was the party that eventually paid for the rights to distribute DMX’s album, but Sussman and Gullo allegedly keep attempting to interfere with the distribution of the release.

Seven Arts is seeking an injunction against Sussman And Gullo, in addition to $6 million in damages.
