Cirque du Soleil is suing Justin Timberlake for unauthorised sampling. The track in question is Timberlake's 'Don't Hold The Wall', from his 20/20 Experience album, which includes a sample from 'Steel Dream', a song from 1997 stage production and album Quidam. But it's not only our man Justin who's getting burned here: Cirque du Soleil names producer Timbaland as the responsible for the sampling, and is seeking $800,000 in copyright infringement damages.

This is not the first time Justin Timberlake has been sued over one of his 20/20 tracks: earlier in the year two members of Sly, Slick & Wicked accused the album's label Universal Music Group of not giving them credit over sampling their vocals from 'Sho' Nuff', the song from which Justin sampled for 'Suit & Tie'.
