Ed Sheeran Wins Copyright Lawsuit

Ed Sheeran has won a copyright lawsuit over his 2017 smash hit single “Shape of You.”

The British musician, one of the world’s best-selling artists, had been accused of copying parts of Sami Chokri’s 2015 track “Oh Why” during the high-profile case. Sheeran, along with co-writers Johnny McDaid and Steven McCutcheon, had denied the claims made by Chokri and his co-writer Ross O’Donoghue.

On Wednesday, Sheeran and his co-defendants were cleared of plagiarism in London’s High Court, with a judge saying there was “insufficient” evidence of “deliberate” copying, according to U.K. newspaper The Independent.
