Ed Sheeran’s Heading To Court With Marvin Gaye Heirs


Ed Sheeran’s Heading To Court With Marvin Gaye Heirs

"Thinking Out Loud" singer #EdSheeran to face a jury in a copyright infringement lawsuit that alleges that he copied elements of #MarvinGaye’s "Let’s Get It On" for his 2014 hit.


Judge Louis Stanton recently ruled against Sheeran’s request to dismiss the suit and insisted that a jury should decide whether he and bosses at Sony/ATV Music Publishing and Atlantic Records should be liable. The lawsuit also benefits the heirs of late producer Ed Townsend, who co-wrote "Let’s Get It On."


Sheeran has denied copying from Gaye.


Gaye’s three kids already have a major win under their belts after being awarded millions over similarities between Marvin Gaye’s 1977 hit "Got to Give It Up" and #RobinThicke’s "Blurred Lines."


That case launched in 2013, and in 2018, Thicke and fellow songwriter #PharrellWilliams were ordered to pay almost $5 million. They were first ordered to pay $7.4 million in a 2015 trial, but the figure was later reduced.
