Former CBC RADIO-CANADA "275-ALLO/ADOS-RADIO" host DOMIIQUE PAYETTE is suing the WHITE STRIPES for using a sample of her voice without permission. PAYETTE's suit alleges that 10 seconds of her voice talking to a little girl in French about something she had done "for the first time" were used at the beginning of "Jumble, Jumble" on the band's 2000 album "DE STIJL."
The suit under QUEBEC's civil code seeks C$70,000 in damages and the removal of the album from the market. PAYETTE is now a lecturer at UNIVERSITE DE LAVAL in QUEBEC CITY.
