As previously reported, Ed Sheeran was sued back in June for copyright infringement. Well either the sharks smell blood, or perhaps there’s something in the water, but be’s been sued again based on another of his songs, as reported by CNN.
This time Ed Sheeran has been sued by the estate of Marvin Gaye, the same folks who sued (and won, pending appeal) Robin Thicke in the Blurred Lines case. The allegation? That Ed Sheeran’s Thinking Out Loud infringes the copyright in Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On.” First, listen for yourself:
