Kanye West's legal advisors submitted a brief addressing a lawsuit filed by a man named Vincent Peters, who claims West stole Peters' idea for his hit “Stronger.” The rapper cites German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche in an effort to convince the court of appeals to uphold the dismissal of Peters' claim.
"it would create a dangerously low threshold for establishing copyright protection over otherwise commonplace words and phrases," wrote West's attorney, Carrie Hall.
Peters' claims West's hit borrows from his own 2006 song, which he says he gave to West's business manager, John Monopoly. Both songs quote Nietzsche's “That which does not kill us makes us stronger." The original case was dismissed earlier this year. .
