Don't matter if she didn't write it...that just means she won't get her ASCAP...but if She performed the song...regardless she get's money from it....not as much as if she wrote it...
but they used her vocals...which if they were on a song and album or movie they are copywrighted...so she will get some money...I'd sue him too...shouldn't steal vocals or samples....
who stole anything?

See people need to wake up and realize the true good in people! Kanye wasn't sampling that to disrespect her, he sampled it to send a message to what people have to go through for our materialistic lifestyles!

What part don't yall people understand...she is owed money even though she didn't write the song she is owed because Kanye USED HER VOCALS so its just like having her sing the hook...you pay for people to sing your hook, RIGHT?..she wasn't paid nor consulted..she is owed some type of fee and maybe some royalities

^^^
REAL TALK!

Yeah she is owed something. But she ain't gonna clean up. That sh*t won't even pay her rent for the rest of the year. If she doesn't own rights, she's screwed. And I'm not talking Dj Screw style

Some old school artists were smarter than these new jacks...Ray Charles owned his own publishing.

Legendary diva DAME SHIRLEY BASSEY is furious after discovering rapper KANYE WEST sampled her 1971 hit DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER in his single DIAMONDS FROM SIERRA LEONE.

The 68-year-old star is considering legal action after West used the chorus from the JAMES BOND soundtrack song and alleges his record label Roc-A-Fella never approached her, reports British newspaper the Daily Mail.

Bassey says, "I didn't know anything about the song before its release.

"He didn't ask my permission to have me singing on the his song. I didn't even know it existed until I heard him performing at the Live 8 concert. I didn't even hear from his record company, which wasn't very nice.

"(Legally) it's something I want to look into, because he was very cheeky, so one way or another he is going to have to pay me a lot of money."

all she gets is royalties, if anything she should sue the company who owns the righst to her song(IMO, becuase they are responsible to pay her royalties, aren't they?)

She really, won't get much he sample probably cleared and someone fu*ked up in the royalties area of the legalities
