Justin Bieber and Usher Win a $10 Million Victory
Devin Copeland and Mareio Overton alleged that they co-wrote a tune very similar to "Somebody to Love" in 2008, two years before the 21-year-old recorded the Usher-written song for his album, My World 2.0.
The two remixes of the Justin-Usher song were also included in the lawsuit, but a judge dismissed their claim on Friday (March 28).
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Judge Arenda Allen ruled that the plaintiffs’ song and "Somebody to Love" could not be "reasonably construed as being substantially similar," adding that, "Although the accused songs have some elements in common with Plaintiffs’ song, their mood, tone, and subject matter differ significantly."
