A couple months ago, a fan sued Martin Shkreli & RZA for artwork on the packaging of “Once Upon A Time In Shaolin”, claiming it was his art and they used it without his permission. Mr. Shkreli has now been dropped from the case, according to Billboard. Hit the jump.

Jason Koza is the artist who filed the lawsuit:

“Mr. Koza agreed to drop his case against Mr. Shkreli on the morning that his opposition to Mr. Shkreli’s motion to dismiss for failure to state a claim was due to be filed in federal court,” Shkreli’s lawyer, John Wait of Fox Rothschild told Billboard in a statement. “Mr. Shkreli did not agree to any conditions or pay any form of settlement in exchange for being dismissed from the case. In our view it is likely that Mr. Koza recognized that he would be unable to maintain an infringement claim against Mr. Shkreli in light of the fair use doctrine.”

Koza also filed a copyright infringement lawsuit in Manhattan federal court in March, is seeking damages from auction site Paddle8, RZA and Once Upon A Time In Shaolin producer Cilvaringz.
