Ed Sheeran is already being sued for allegedly copying Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On” for his track “Thinking Out Loud”.  Now a second lawsuit has been filed by a company that claims to own a portion of the rights to “Let’s Get It On”.  And they want $100 million.

A guy named Ed Townsend co-wrote “Let’s Get It On” with Gaye, but he died in 2003.  His FAMILY is already suing Sheeran.

The new lawsuit was filed by a company called Structured Asset Sales.  They claim they own a portion of the rights to “Let’s Get It On”.

And according to their lawsuit, Sheeran cribbed, quote, “the melody, rhythms, harmonies, drums, bass line, backing chorus, tempo, syncopation and looping” . . . among other things.  (???)

And they want him to cough up $100 MILLION.

Other recording artists to face copyright claims in recent years have included Miley Cyrus, Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Led Zeppelin and Madonna.

Have a listen & decide for yourself.
