INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY: WHEN SETTLING

Sometimes it is better to settle complex cases of music copyright. See this article: https://www.lgt-law.com/blog/2017/04/singer-ed-sheeran-settles-following-suit.shtml

At the same time (while the article regards that great artist, Ed Sheeran, see this wonderful video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lp-EO5I60KA), a plagiarism case to be successful, lawyers had to prove substantial similarity, access (that the defendant would have heard the song), and the originality of the melody that was allegedly plagiarised. See that very precise article of the Guardian: https://www.theguardian.com/music/2017/apr/11/ed-sheeran-20m-dollar-copyright-claim-matt-cardle-x-factor

All artists have the right for their original work to be protected. This applies to paintings, digital art, … Intellectual Property Litigation, but sometimes peace of mind is better then a royalty.
