The legal battle over the “All the Stars” music video is finally over. Kendrick Lamar and SZA have reached an agreement in the case, reports The Blast.
On Dec. 21, court documents were filed by both parties who have agreed to dropped the litigation against each other. The case stems from a lawsuit filed by artist Lina Iris Viktor who accused K.Dot and SZA of stealing elements of her copyrighted work for their “All the Stars” music video, which is from the Black Panther soundtrack.
She claims that her works “Constellations I,” “Constellations II” and “Constellations III” were featured in the video, despite her giving them no permission to do use them prior to the visual being released.
In the suit, Viktor states that TDE reached out to her twice regarding using her artwork and she denied them both times. Nevertheless, the artist claims they recreated facsimiles of her works in the music video.
Viktor said her artwork was copyrighted and they infringed on those copyrights. She sued for unspecified damages, plus an injunction on her copyrighted works.
Details of their settlement have not been disclosed. But all claims will be dismissed and the entire case is closed, in accordance to their agreement
