MUSIC Controversy

Copyright infringement in the music industry can be tricky sometimes. While some songs accidentally sound like others, many hit tracks we know have actually used samples or riffs from older records without attributing proper credit, which can get artists in legal trouble.

Speaking of legal trouble, it continues for Taylor Swift. A three-judge panel just reinstated a lawsuit filed by two songwriters against Swift, alleging she lifted lyrics from Sean Hall's song 'Playas Gon’ Play' for her 2014 record 'Shake It Off.'
