Ed Sheeran has been slapped with a lawsuit for copyright infringement on his hit song ” Photograph”. Song writers for X Factor winner Matt Cardle say that the song copies their own tune called “Amazing” which was sung by Cardle. The writers are Martin Harrington and Thomas Leonard and they have the same lawyer , Richard Busch, who represented the Marvin Gaye family in the “Blurred Lines” case.
The claims made in the 20 million dollar lawsuit say “verbatim, note-for-note copying” and also that the songs share 39 identical notes in pitch and placement.
Photograph reached the number one spot on the charts in May of 2015.
