Ed Sheeran Wins Copyright Case

 Ed Sheeran has won a copyright infringement lawsuit over his song "Thinking Out Loud."

 The family of Ed Townsend claimed that Sheeran copied key elements of Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On."

 A federal judge ruled in Sheeran's favor, finding that the similarities between the two songs were not substantial enough to warrant a copyright claim.

 Sheeran was also cleared of copying parts of another song in 2019.

 This victory is a positive outcome for Sheeran, who has faced multiple accusations of copying other artists' work.
