Kanye West Says Holler If Ya Hear Ye, Wins Big In Nasty Digital Fight | Sohh.com

Following the suit's filing, the creators of Coinye -- a electronic currency they hoped would rival encrypted Bitcoin -- said they would change the name. Their website even posted a message, "COINYE IS DEAD. You win, Kanye." (NY Post) Back in January, reports about a New York judge green lighting Ye to allow his attorneys to hunt down the people behind Coinye bubbled online. A judge in New York City has given Kanye West's lawyers permission to track the anonymous creators of an online currency which the rapper claims is trading off his name. The team behind the currency has so far remained anonymous, but during a court hearing on Thursday (16Jan14), U.S. District Judge Analisa Torres granted West's attorneys legal authority to track down the identities of those behind the scheme. The lawsuit is seeking unspecified damages, and seeks to block the exchange of the Coinye currency. (Hollywood) Despite appearing to shut Kim Kardashian superstar featuring Ray J down a few days prior, Coinye had only made a few minor changes and informed online users it did not fall victim to Ye's Kim Kardashian nose Job wrath. The website is currently live, allowing users to start using the currency -- dubbed CoinyeCoin -- today.
