Carly Rae Jepsen Sued for Plagiarism

A lawsuit was filed against Carly Rae Jepsen accusing her of plagiarizing a song by Allyson Burnett. The judge gave the final verdict today and it spells trouble for Jepsen. Her record company, BMI has to cough up $800,000 to Allyson who is an Alabama native. 

Allyson claimed that Carly along with Owl City and some other musicians had blatantly imitated her song “Ah, It’s a Love Song." Listen to the song below. There version was titled “Good Time”. There have been no comments from Jepsen regarding her loss. Carly is currently making her debut for Broadway. She is slated to play her part in the musical Cinderella. The stint is to last about three months. 

TMZ reports that BMI has placed $800,000 in escrow for Burnett in order to get the lawsuit dropped. Usually when something new transpires, the media goes into a feeding frenzy in which the truth is lost. The fact is that Carly is in dire straits due to her seemingly harmless plagiarism

On the other hand, her acting chops may prove to be a way out of this sordid affair. Carly has studied in a performing arts academy and she has always had a wish to act in a Broadway musical one day. This desire just may be coming true for Carly at the very time when her purely musical career is on the rocks.
