50 Cent has been going through a on going battle with the courts about copyright issues.But fortunately for him the battle is over and the case is dismissed.

This particular lawsuit dealt with “Before I Self Destruct,” a feature film that includes Fiddy’s 2009 album that has the same name.50 Cent was accused of stealing some key phrases in a 2008 book, “The Preacher’s Son – But the Streets Turned Me Into a Gangster,” written by Shadrach Winstead.

Here’s what a representative said about the lawsuit:

“With respect to the various specific phrases and lines which Winstead alleged that our client took from the book, we demonstrated that many were misquoted, manipulated or not in the movie at all and that, in any event, they were non-copyrightable short phrases or unpredictable expressions used in the ‘street’ such as ‘get the dope, cut the dope,’”
