Ed Sheeran Wins Copyright Lawsuit

This is an update to Did Ed Sheeran rip “Shape of You” chorus from Sami Switch?

Ed Sheeran made it out of this one and the courts are on his side.

According to Variety:

A U.K. High Court ruled on Wednesday that Sheeran had not plagiarised the 2015 song “Oh Why” by Sami Chokri.

In his ruling, Judge Antony Zacaroli said that Sheeran had “neither deliberately nor subconsciously copied” Chokri’s work. He added that there were “similarities between the one-bar phrase” in “Shape of You” and “Oh Why,” saying, “such similarities are only a starting point for a possible infringement” of copyright.

After studying both songs, Zacaroli concluded that there were “differences between the relevant parts” of the songs, which “provide compelling evidence that the ‘Oh I’ phrase” in “Shape of You “originated from sources other than ‘Oh Why.’”
