Kanye West reveals his philosophical side
Kanye West's super team of lawyers having been working day and night to contest the claim from Vincent Rogers that the line "That which does not kill us makes us stronger" was taken from the plaintiff.
They argue that both musicians were inspired by the polemical and much-celebrated German philosopher's popular phrase, which is, to all intents, quoted verbatim by West in his song.
However, Mr Rogers, who wrote a song called stronger in 2006, also claims there are too many similarities between the songs. For example, the titles are the same and they both name check supermodel Kate Moss.
Carrie Hall, one West's lawyers, said that if Mr Rogers was successful in his claims "it would create a dangerously low threshold for establishing copyright protection over otherwise commonplace words and phrases".
Nietzsche was a 19th German philosopher famous for his concept of superman, which was postulated in his classic book Zarathustra.
