The Court Says Ed Sheeran Didn’t Steal “Shape of You”

ED SHEERAN did NOT steal “Shape of You”.  A court ruled yesterday that the song wasn’t plagiarized from a 2015 track called “Oh Why” by Sami Switch.

 

After the ruling, Ed made a video, complaining that these types of lawsuits are happening way too often these days.  Quote, “Whilst we’re obviously happy with the result, I feel like claims like this are way too common now . . .

 

“And have become a culture where a claim is made with the idea that a settlement will be cheaper than taking it to court, even if there is no basis for the claim.  It’s really damaging to the songwriting industry.”
