Peter William Nelson (better known by his stage name Copywrite, also known as Copywrite 78) is an underground hip-hop artist from Columbus, Ohio. A member of the Columbus crew MHz (or MegaHertz), Nelson emerged from the underground scene in 1998 along with his group "MHz" with a debut single on Fondle 'em Records,entitled "World Premier" b/w a solo song by the late Tero Alexander Smith, better known to the rap world as "Camu Tao" entitled "Camu" own by Bobbito Garcia & later went solo due to DJ Mighty Mi not wanting to sign his group, "MHz". In 2000 he released "Holier Than Thou" with producer RJD2 on Eastern Conference/Rawkus Records.

His debut album The High Exhaulted was released on the Eastern Conference label to some praise, although some felt that RJD2's beats were too dark for Copywrite's persona. His second release, Cruise Control Mixtape: Volume 1, was released on the O.D.O.T. record label in 2004, rerelased on Nature Sounds in 2005 and featured production from Jake One, J-Zone, & the late, great Jay Dilla. Copywrite was one of an original members of the Weathermen, but left after personal disagreements with Cage.

In 2007 Copywrite appeared on the debut album by R.O.N.O. and on the UK rap group Rhyme Asylum's debut album. His 2007 mixtape The Jerk: Volume 0 features guest appearances from Royce da 5'9", Crooked I, Killah Priest, Thirstin Howl III, Shabaam Sahdeeq, Jakki Da Motamouth, Catalyst, King.Dom, and Meta4ce Omega. It also features production from the late J Dilla, Jake One, Rocktight, the late DJ Przm, DR Period, platinum producers Cool & Dre, D-Dot, Needlz, Kickdrums, Chris Scholar, Jay Notes, Mighty Fuzz Young, and more. « hide
