Ed Sheeran Says ‘You Can Only Get Caught Out If You’ve Done Something Wrong’ When Discussing Copyright Case’
Ed Sheeran told CBS Sunday Morning that getting sued “comes with the territory” of being a big pop star.
The singer addressed his recent victory in the “Thinking Out Loud” copyright lawsuit, saying, “There’s like four chords that get used in pop songs. And if you just think mathematically the likelihood of this song having the same chords as this song—there’s multiple, multiple songs—it’s all the same four chords … you are going to get this with every single pop song from now on. Unless it just stops, which I don’t think it does because it’s a big money business to take things to court. But you can only get caught out if you’ve done something wrong, and I have not done something wrong. I used four chords that are very common cords to use.”
