Sheeran, McGraw, Hill set­tle copy­right law­suit

The Philippine Star - - WORLD NEWS -

NEW YORK (Reuters) — Ed Sheeran, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill have set­tled a copy­right law­suit claim­ing that their song “The Rest of Our Life” was a “bla­tant” rip-off of a song by two Aus­tralian song­writ­ers, ti­tled “When I Found You.”

A lawyer for the song­writ­ers Sean Carey and Beau Golden said all par­ties have agreed in prin­ci­ple to set­tle the case, and have it dis­missed in 30 days if all “fi­nal is­sues” are re­solved.

The set­tle­ment was dis­closed in a let­ter filed on Thurs­day night with the United States District Court in Man­hat­tan.

Sheeran, the English singer and song­writer, had cowrit­ten “The Rest of Our Life” for McGraw and Hill, the mar­ried US coun­try mu­sic stars. The song was re­leased in 2017, two years af­ter “When I Found You,” which was per­formed and co-writ­ten by Aus­tralian coun­try star Jas­mine Rae.
