Nearly three years since allegations first appeared accusing famed producer Timbaland of sampling chiptune track "Acidjazzed Evening" for Nelly Furtado's single "Do It" without giving credit or compensation, record label Kernel filed suit against Timbaland and Furtado for copyright infringement.

"Acidjazzed Evening" was originally composed by Finnish demoscene artist Janne "Tempest" Suni using a 4-channel Amiga module, then remixed with permission by Norwegian Glenn "GRG" Rune Gallefoss for the Commodore. Kernel, which owns the sound recording rights for the song, claims that Timbaland used the "original and central identifying melodic, harmonic and rhythmic components" of the remix for "Do It".

The lawsuit was filed in the Miami-Dade Division of the US District Court Southern District of Florida. According to a report from music news site Music Radar, Kernel is requesting that Mosley Music (Timbaland's record label) and Geffen (Nelly's label) transfer the ownership of the song's copyrights, and is asking for an "an injunction prohibiting the further release, reprinting, performance and sale of the song 'Do It'".

Timbaland responded to the allegations in 2007: "It makes me laugh. The part I don't understand, the dude is trying to act like I went to his house and took it from his computer. I don't know him from a can of paint. I'm 15 years deep. That's how you attack a king? You attack moi? Come on, man. You got to come correct. You the laughing stock. People are like, 'You can't be serious.'"
