Singer Ed Sheeran is being sued for $20 million for copyright infringement for the popular song, “Photograph,” which songwriters Martin Harrington and Thomas Leonard say the musical structure is similar to their track, “Amazing,” which they wrote in 2009. Their song was released in 2012 by British “X Factor” winner Matt Cardle. “Photograph” was a top 10 hit in the U.S, for Sheeran, and the official music video has been viewed more than 200 million times on YouTube.
Sheeran is known for writing for artists like Pharrell, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, and One Direction, so we sure hope this is just a coincidence. Say it ain’t so, Ed!
