Usher, Justin Bieber and song co-producers have been sued for allegedly copying their hit song, “Somebody to Love”, reports ABCnews.
Devin Copeland “De Rico” and Mareio Overton claim they composed and produced an original music composition titled, “Somebody to Love” in 2008. In March 2008, Devin claims he recorded the song on his album “My Story II” and was issued a copyright registration number by the U.S. Copyright Office on Oct. 2, 2008.
According to ABC, they are suing for at least $10 million in for copyright infringement, contributory infringement, and vicarious infringement.
Justin Bieber win 3 awards from 3 categories at Much Music Awards in Toronto (June 20).
Jusin takes home awards in each of the categories for which he was nominated. Bieber won UR Fave Video and UR Fave New Artist for “Baby” featuring Ludacris, and Best International Video by a Canadian for his debut single, “One Time.”
“It’s my first award, and to have it in Canada is just amazing,” Bieber told the crowd after winning the latter.
Bieber beat Toronto rapper/singer Drake to win “UR Fave New Artist” and “UR Fave Video”, which are both decided by fan voting, and performed “Baby” along with his current single, “Somebody to Love.”
Congratulations to JB.
