Steve Rosen claims Lady Gaga stole a three-note progression from his 2012 song “Almost.” Through his lawyer, he has filed suit for copyright infringement and damages in the “millions and millions” of dollars.
Lady Gaga’s song “Shallow” earned the Grammy-winning singer-songwriter her first Academy Award. The song, featured in the 2018 film A Star Is Born, is now the subject of a multi-million-dollar lawsuit.
This suit comes as the latest in a string of music copyright lawsuits, beginning with the “Blurred Lines” case, Katy Perry over her song “Dark Horse” and the 9th U.S. Circuit Court Of Appeals’ calling for a new trial over the claim against Led Zepplin.
One of the key elements in these cases is the question of the artists having access to the previous work. Another question arising from these cases concerns the protect-ability of simple chord progressions.
