Ed Sheeran Sued for Copying Marvin Gaye


Pop star Ed Sheeran is being sued for copyright infringement by the partial owners of R&B icon Marvin Gaye's hit single "Let's Get It On..."
 
According to reports Structured Asset Sales have filed a lawsuit against Ed Sheeran claiming his smash hit single "Thinking Out Loud" is a complete rip off of "Let's Get It On."

The lawsuit claims Ed copied the melody, rhythms, harmonies, drums, bassline, backing chorus, tempo, syncopation and looping.

Structured Asset Sales, who own 1/3 of "Let's Get It On", is seeking $100 million in damages.

Fun Fact: Ed Sheeran was forced to add Kandi Burruss and Tiny Harris to the credits of his hit single "Shape of You" after fans called him out for copying "No Scrubs [click here if you missed that]."

Good I'm glad they're suing his thieving ass. With those folks there is no shame. Make him pay UP!

Marvin's Estate is coming for their coins! As much money has been stolen from black artists and how many Jews have been made rich because of it, I consider it reparations. They are able to pass their ill-gained assets on to their kids for generations, yet the artist's family barely gets anything. I am here for it. Get your money, Marvin's descendants!

Both 1:03's ITA..stop stealing people shit and come up with your own tunes, or if you do infringe be prepared to pay and give credit up front.

Yes they do sound the same. Even some of the runs. Never noticed til now because I never liked the song. Boring and watered down R&B.
