Jessie J Sued For Copyright Infringement Over Hit Song ‘Domino’
Pop singer Jessie J is being hit with a copyright infringement lawsuit by singer Will Loomis – who claims that large segments of his 2008 song ‘Bright Red Chords’ have been plagiarised in the Jessie’s No.1 hit ‘Domino'...
According to NME, the suit takes aim at the Brit Award winning singer and her representative labels, Universal Music Group, Lava Records and Universal Republic Records.
In a written statement, Mr Loomis’ lawyer claims: "Mr. Loomis never consented to the use of his song. We look forward to obtaining an appropriate remedy from the court for this clear infringement."
A disgruntled Will Loomis uploaded videos online in April comparing both tracks. The Voice judge is currently working on a sophomore album, which follows the hugely successful 2011 debut ‘Who You Are.’ The upcoming LP is thought to include duets with both Tinie Tempah and Ed Sheeran. Jessie will also be headlining her first ever arena tour which commences February 2013.
