Ed Sheeran’s being sued over claims he copied a song released by X Factor
winner and Essex-based singer Matt Cardle.
Two Californian musicians want £14 million.
It’s the song Photograph which is the subject of copyright papers filed in LA.
Songwriters Martin Harrington and Thomas Leonard say Sheeran ‘exploited’ their work and claim there are 39 identical notes between Photograph and their song Amazing which was released by Cardle in 2011.
Photograph has sold more than 3-and-a-half million copies.
There’s no comment from Sheeran.
