Ed Sheeran accused of plagiarizing two Australian songwriters.

Recommended Posts

“The Rest of Our Life,” a song released by Tim McGraw and Faith Hill and co-written by Ed Sheeran, is the subject of a lawsuit from Australian songwriters Sean Carey and Beau Golden. The suit, filed Wednesday in New York federal court, claims the McGraw/Hill song “blatant[ly] copyed” their 2014 song “When I Found You,” which was performed by Jasmine Rae. The news was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter.

“The copying is, in many instances, verbatim, note-for-note copying of original elements of the Song, and is obvious to the ordinary observer,” the complaint reads.

 Carey and Golden are represented by attorney Richard Busch, who won the pivotal “Blurred Lines” case that saw Marvin Gaye’s family win a $5.3 million victory over Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams over similarities between that song and Gaye’s “Got to Give It Up.” Busch was also behind a $20 million lawsuit against Sheeran over the song “Photograph.” That case was settled, with the songwriters being added to the credits.

No, Kandi Burrus and Tiny from Xscape. He sampled a melody from TLC’s No Scrubs (which Kandi and Tiny wrote) and didn’t credit them. They were eventually added to the songwriting credits.
