Ed Sheeran wins court case
Sheerios, good news!
Ed Sheeran has won his court case.
Sami Chokri and Ross O'Donoghue claimed he had ripped off their 2015 song 'Oh Why' with 'Shape of You'. However, it was concluded that Sheeran 'neither deliberately nor subconsciously' copied phrases.
Despite this positive win Ed has spoken out about 'damaging' copyright claim culture and says he's a 'human being' not a 'corporation' after a 'painful' court case.
