Ed Sheeran faces $100 million law suit due to plagiarism!

by Vibhuti Gupta, Saturday, June 30, 2018

Renowned singer Ed Sheeran has been sued for the second time over allegations that his hit song Thinking Out Loud is a plagiarized version of Marvin Gayes 1973 hit song, Lets Get It On! This is a dark phase for the singer but his fans are in support!

The song, Thinking Out Loud released in 2014

A company called Structured Asset Sales, which owns part of the copyright of Gaye's song, is suing Sheeran for $100 million, alleging that his 2014 single copies "the melody, rhythms, harmonies, drums, bass line, backing chorus, tempo, syncopation and looping" of Gaye's 1973 hit, reports theguardian.com.

The suit follows another against Thinking out loud filed in August 2016 by the family of Townsend Jr, claiming "the melodic, harmonic and rhythmic: compositions of 'Thinking' are substantially and/or strikingly similar to the drum composition of Let's".

A judge rejected its initial motion for intervention on June 11. Structured Asset Sales then filed a fresh lawsuit repeating the claim of copyright infringement.

Defendants lis.ted in the new claim include Sony/ATV Music Publishing, Atlantic Records and co-writer Amy Padge.Follow our Bollywood Magazine For Latest Bollywood News and Gossips.
