Rap Genius Squashes Beef with NMPA

Last November, it looked like unlicensed lyrics on Rap Genius—a website that's based on lyrics—could lead to a serious legal battle between the startup and the National Music Publishers' Association. But co-founder Ilan Zechory tells me they've made peace.

The NMPA will "enter into a settlement and license with Rap Genius," according to a post on the latter's website. To prove that things are actually OK between the two parties, Zechory attached the above photo of "NMPA President and CEO David Israelite's daughter Maia rocking her custom Rap Genius onesie!" All legal battles should be settled by the presentation of custom onesies to corporate scions.
