Owl City & Carly Rae Jepsen Get Sued!
Uh-oh! Trouble is in the air for Owl City and sweet ol' Carly Rae Jepsen, although more than being in the air, it's in court! For both pop stars have been sued by Alabama-based singer/songwriter Allyson Nichole Burnett for an alleged copyright infringement of her own original track "Ah, It's a Love Song"...Read below!
It's all happening cause of Owl City and Carly's recent hit pop collaboration "Good Time". This Allyson person is saying that that song copies a "unique vocal motif" from the track she released in 2010 as stated in the lawsuit she's filed in a California federal court. She's also suing Matt Thiessen and Brian Lee - two named co-writers of "Good Time". Hmmmm....I guess another sign to certify you've 'made it' in the industry is to get sued...right Carly?. Plagiarism lawsuits are no extraordinary thing in the music business. In fact, they're more frequent these last years. Yet, the most-relevant cases brought to court in the last times have been dismissed. And I think this will be same for Owl City and Carly's. Please listen to Allyson Nichole Burnett's "Ah, It's a Love Song" in the YouTube video below and let me know if you find a real similarity (Come On!). Oh, and what is she asking?. "Plaintiff is thefore entitled to a constructive trust over all profits and royalties collected and held by the Royalty Distributors...". You wish, girl!
