Singer sues Ed Sheeran for Ksh10 billion

The owner of the copyright for Marvin Gaye’s hit song “Let’s Get It On” filed a complaint against English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran.

The complaint claims Sheeran’s song “Thinking Out Loud” copies large parts of Gaye’s work, including its vocal melodies, bass lines, chord progression, and harmonic rhythm.

“Thinking Out Loud” was nominated for a Grammy Award for Song of the Year in 2016.

The complaint includes a single claim for copyright infringement and alleges damages of Ksh10 billion ($100 million).

A judge has not been assigned to the case.
