Singer Jessie J Hit With Copyright Infringement Claim Over ‘Domino’
British singer Jessie J is reportedly being sued for copyright infringement over her hit song ‘Domino.’
The accusation by singer/songwriter Will Loomis that large sections of ‘Domino’ are lifted from Loomis’s 2008 song ‘Bright Red chords’ recorded with his band Loomis and the Lust, has now gone public.
A statement issued by Loomis’ lawyer reads,
“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.”
According to Billboard, the lawsuit includes Jessie J and her record labels Universal Music Group, Lava Records and Universal Republic Records as parties in the claim.
A multi-million selling artist and Brit Award winner, Jessie recently appeared as a popular judge on BBC talent show The Voice and will play 13 dates on her first arena tour in February and March 2013.
