Blimey! The Ginger Clam’s favourite little ginger is potentially in a serious spot of bother.
The red haired musical genius, Ed Sheeran has allegedly stolen a song from the 2010 British X factor winner Matt Cardle.
The Ginger Ninga is accused of “verbatim, note-for-note copying” (whatever the f*** that means) for his chart smashing hit ‘Photograph‘, which is said to sound an awful lot like Cardle’s track ‘Amazing‘.
It’s Cardle’s songwriters Martin Harrington and Thomas Leonard who are reportedly accusing Sheeran of thieving their work.
According to The Hollywood Reporter the lawsuit claims ‘Photograph’: “is too similar to both the composition written by Harrington and Leonard.
“The similarities go beyond substantial, which is itself sufficient to establish copyright infringement, and are in fact striking.”
By the sound of it Sheernan could be in a world of shit! What’s even worse is that apparently the lawsuit is also being filed by the same attorney who repped the Marvin Gaye family in the ‘Blurred Lines’ copyright case.
Richard Busch is the super-slick attorney in charge, who raked in a mind blowing £5.3 million for his client.
