UPI News Service, 03/10/2013 

An Oklahoma woman whose TV news interview after a fire went viral is suing Apple after a mashup of her words was put to music and sold on iTunes.

Sweet Brown, aka Kimberly Wilkens, was captured by KFOR-TV, Oklahoma City, ranting after her apartment caught fire. Her assertion that the smoke gave her bronchitis and, "Ain't nobody got time for that!" caught on and a Seattle radio station called to interview Wilkens. They set the interview to music and began selling it on iTunes.

Court records show the song, "I got bronchitis," was for sale on iTunes from April 16 to June 29, The (Oklahoma City) Oklahoman said Sunday. It doesn't say how many times it was downoaded.

Wilkens said she never gave consent to her image or words being set to music. Initially, the suit by Wilkens and business partner Sparkell Adams sought $15 million from Apple but a revised filing doesn't say how much the women want.

The suit also names the radio station employees and the San Antonio-based company that owns the station.
