Ed Sheeran wins copyright case
A jury in Manhattan has determined that Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud" did not rip off Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On". Sheeran said he's "obviously very happy with the outcome of the case" and won't have "to retire from my day job after all". "But at the same time I'm unbelievably frustrated that baseless claims like this are allowed to go to court at all." Ed Sheeran, via statement. "We have spent the last eight years talking about two songs with dramatically different lyrics, melodies and four chords which are also different and used by songwriters every day, all over the world."
