Producer Baauer has been hit with a copyright lawsuit over his viral hit song Harlem Shake.

Rapper Jayson Musson and Hector Delgado have both accused the 23 year old, real name Harry Rodrigues, of sampling their voices on the track without their permission, and now they are seeking damages from production bosses at Mad Decent Records, who released the song last year (12).

Musson claims his vocals were lifted off Miller Time, a song by his music group Plastic Little, however he insists both parties are handling the legal battle amicably, telling the New York Times, "Mad Decent have been more than cooperative during this."

Meanwhile, Delgado, who alleges his voice was borrowed from a refrain on his 2006 single Maldades, is confident he will emerge victorious in the case - his former manager Javier Gomez adds, "Hector will get what he deserves. We can turn around and stop that song. That's a clear breaking of intellectual property rights."
