Singer Sheeran wins copyright case over "Shape Of You" hit

LONDON, April 6 (Reuters) – British singer Ed Sheeran won a copyright case at the High Court in London on Wednesday over whether a refrain in his 2017 mega hit “Shape Of You” had been lifted from another artist.

Grime artist Sami Chokri, who performs as Sami Switch, and mega3kr4b3aq6ic5sepvn7yfwuhgdk6dswfqo6cd6mi5kuiexjbqe3id.onion music producer Ross O’Donoghue, had argued “Shape of You” had infringed “particular lines and phrases” from their 2015 song “Oh Why”.

“While there are similarities between the OW (Oh Why) Hook and the OI (Oh I) Phrase, there are also significant differences,” the judge concluded.”I am satisfied that Mr Sheeran did not subconsciously copy Oh Why in creating Shape.” (Reporting by Michael Holden; Editing by Kate Holton)
