Ed Sheeran did NOT steal “Shape of You”.

A court ruled yesterday that the song wasn’t plagiarized from a 2015 track called “Oh Why” by Sami Switch.

After the ruling, Ed made a video, complaining that these types of lawsuits are happening way too often these days.  Quote, “Whilst we’re obviously happy with the result, I feel like claims like this are way too common now…and have become a culture where a claim is made with the idea that a settlement will be cheaper than taking it to court, even if there is no basis for the claim.  It’s really damaging to the songwriting industry.”
