Judge tosses copyright lawsuit against Lady Gaga
Question of the Day
CHICAGO — 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.
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.
The judge also concluded there wasn’t enough evidence that Gaga could have heard or known about Francescatti’s song before publishing “Judas.”
Aspen writes that the songs “are so utterly dissimilar that reasonable minds could not differ as to a lack of substantial similarity between them.”
