Ed Sheeran accused of stealing ‘Photograph’

Ed Sheeran has landed himself in some legal trouble after hit songwriters accused him of stealing his hit “Photograph” from them.

Martin Harrington and Thomas Leonard is seeking $20 million from the singer who they claim reproduced their 2009 single “Amazing” note-for-note, TIME reports.

“The similarity of words, vocal style, vocal melody, melody, and rhythm are clear indicators, among other things, that ‘Photograph’ copies ‘Amazing’,” their lawsuit states.

“Amazing” became a hit in its own right when X Factor winner Matt Cardle recorded and released it as a single in 2009.

Go listen to the song and decide for yourself if Sheeran did a Xerox for his “Photograph.”

Sheeran is not the only one who has allegedly been mining other people’s music recently. Justin Bieber and Kanye West have also been caught lifting material.
