Artist Who Sued Kendrick Lamar Over ‘Black Panther’ Video Agrees to Settle


The positive artist Lina Iris Viktor has agreed to settle a lawsuit she filed in opposition to Kendrick Lamar and the singer SZA saying their music video for “All the Stars,” a part of the “Black Panther” soundtrack, used her work with out permission.

Viktor, a British-Liberian artist, was approached twice by representatives of the film asking if her work might be used within the movie or as a part of its promotion. After deeming the settlement too restrictive, she mentioned no.

Nonetheless, a part of the video “is so clearly a copy of the artists’s work,” in accordance to the criticism, which was filed in federal courtroom in New York in February. Viktor sued for a portion of the earnings from the sale of the one and the film’s soundtrack.
