- Ed Sheeran has the title of being the most reproduced British artist in the United Kingdom
- One of the most influential figures in the music industry on the entire planet, and the owner of unique charisma.
- But all of the above does not exempt him from accusations of plagiarism that he has had to face throughout his career.
The artist owner of hits such as “Shape of You” or “Perfect” even had to pay the figure of 14 million pounds when he received accusations of plagiarism for one of his most famous songs, “Photograph”. In the past, Leonard and Martin Harrington, composers of Amazing, pointed out Ed Sheeran for copying them and the courts agreed with them.
Later, when Ed Sheeran published “Thinking Out Loud” six years ago, he also faced a dispute with the heirs of Marvin Gaye, after they alleged that Thinking Out Loud bears a resemblance to Gaye’s Let’s Get It On. Recently the court determined that Ed Sheeran could face a new trial for plagiarism.
The British artist was accused last year of plagiarizing Marvin Gaye’s original song. Now the record “allows the court to reasonably infer that the plaintiff has ownership of the 2020 copyright.” That is, you can file a copyright lawsuit against the singer of hits like “Shape of You.”
As reported by the Reuters news agency, the judge left the case on hold, citing a “significant overlap” with the plaintiff’s separate lawsuit against Ed Sheeran for a 1973 copyright-based solely on the score of Marvin’s song. Gaye. But this is not the first time he has faced a plagiarism lawsuit.
