Floyd Mayweather Jr. Prevails in Copyright Lawsuit

By TMZ

Floyd Mayweather isn't just the champ in the ring .... he's also the champ in court, beating down a music producer who accused him of jacking a song beat back in 2008.

You might recall, producer Anthony Lawrence Dash sued Money May in 2010 over a song the boxer used as entrance music during his 2008 appearance at WWE's Wrestlemania 24. Dash said the beat in the song was his, and Floyd used it without permission.

Dash sued Mayweather, WWE, and others for at least $150,000 in damages -- but a judge recently ruled in Mayweather's favor.

According to the ruling, Dash wasn't entitled to a cut of the profits from Mayweather's use of the song ... because he couldn't prove Mayweather even made money off the song in the first place (same with WWE).

Bottom line: Dash lost ... and unlike Canelo, he didn't even get a consolation prize.

[QUOTE=uniquehump;13787504]I have to respectfully disagree because I don't think playing his beat as a ring entrance constitutes copyright infringement. If it was a bar or a club, his music might get some spins, but he wouldn't sue the deejay. If…

Strange, I would want somebody walking out to one of my songs. If he wasn't directly compensated, i'm sure there were people who looked up that song to see who made it. He probably made a couple of album sales…
