Ed Sheeran sued for more than $20M over popular hit

English heart throb Ed Sheeran is reportedly being sued for more than $20 million.

The Hollywood Reporter says the 25-year-old was hit with the lawsuit by the songwriters of UK X Factor winner Matt Cardle’s single ‘Amazing’.

They claim Sheeran’s 2014 hit ‘Photograph’ copies their 2009 song “note-for-note”.

“The chorus sections of Amazing and the infringing Photograph share 39 identical notes – meaning the notes are identical in pitch, rhythmic duration, and placement in the measure,” the lawsuit states.
