Judge tosses copyright lawsuit against Lady Gaga

FILE - In this Dec. 17, 2013 file photo provided by NBC, Lady Gaga performs during the season five finale of “The Voice” in Los Angeles. A federal judge has dismissed a copyright lawsuit against Lady Gaga filed by a Chicago songwriter who accused her of stealing parts of one of her songs. Rebecca Francescatti filed the suit in U.S. District Court in Chicago in 2011, alleging that Lady Gaga had copied music and the title lyric from her 1998 song “Juda.” Gaga’s 2011 song is called “Judas.” Judge Marvin Aspen ruled this week that the songs do not have common lyrics, have different themes and sound nothing alike musically.
