50 Cent Wins Lawsuit Accusing ‘Power’ of Copying Another Show

on

A judge has thrown out a lawsuit accusing 50 Cent of ripping off ‘Power’ from someone else’s show.

via TMZ:

Two guys wrote a play called “Dangerous” which they claimed was eerily like “Power.” The story line involved a drug dealer who engaged in violence, launders money and attempts to stave off prosecution. The court said these are common elements that are in the public domain and “One need only look to such shows and movies as The Wire, Empire, Breaking Bad, Narcos, Weeds, Carlito’s Way, American Gangster, New Jack City, Scarface and Paid in Full.”

Well, that’s one less ‘Power’ problem 50 has to deal with.
