Viral video star sues Apple over sample sold on iTunes

Kimberly Wilkins, who goes by the nickname "Sweet Brown," sues Apple and local radio stations over what she says is the unauthorized use of her interview in a song sold on iTunes.

A viral video star has sued Apple over the sale of a track put on iTunes that sampled her catchphrase.

Kimberly Wilkins, who goes by the nickname "Sweet Brown," filed a complaint against the tech giant as well as local radio stations earlier this month, reports NewsOK.

Wilkins garnered Internet fame for her appearance in an on-the-scene TV interview about a local apartment fire last year, which included her saying, "Ain't nobody got time for that."

Some sampling from that interview was turned into a song called "I got bronchitis" that was sold on iTunes for about two and a half months before being taken down.

Wilkins and her co-plaintiff, Sparkell Adams, originally wanted $15 million in damages from Apple, NewsOK reports, but an updated version of the complaint got rid of the amount.

An Apple spokeswoman declined to comment on the complaint.

Here's the video of the original interview:
