Will.I.Am In Copyright Breach Claim
Star's new track alleged to have borrowed material without permission...
Let's Go - a track from The Voice coach's new #willpower album - is alleged to very closely resemble trance tune Rebound by Arty & Matt Zo.
And Zo has posted on Facebook urging fans to behave themselves after an internet backlash against Will.I.Am and Brown.
He wrote: "I really and truly appreciate all the support you are giving me and Arty in response to will.i.am's copyright infringement.
"However, this doesn't excuse the horrific abuse you're sending the way of will.i.am and Chris Brown, and it especially doesn't excuse being racist."
And he had earlier written: "Arty and I are not bitter about this, more surprised. We knew will.i.am was interested in this track, but declined working with him at the time."
Chris Brown is reported by Digital Spy to have tweeted that he was unaware of any copyright infringement when he recorded his part for the track.
In a post which was later deleted, he wrote: "Someone asked for a feature on a record and I did it."
Will was the subject of Tulisa's anger over another track last year.
