Ed Sheeran sued for ripping off Marvin Gaye's song

Ed Sheeran has been sued for $100m by a company claiming the singer ripped off a Marvin Gaye's classic. The company Structured Asset Sales filed the lawsuit, claiming Ed's song, Thinking Out Loud, is a carbon copy of Gaye’s Let’ s Get it On.
According to the lawsuit, Sheeran's song has the same melody, rhythms, harmonies, drums, bass line, backing chorus, tempo, syncopation and looping as Let's Get it On.

Gaye’s song was written by a guy named Edward Townsend and Gaye in 1973. Townsend died in 2003, and Structured Asset Sales bought one - third of the copyright.

There is no word if the Gaye family will be joining the suit or filing a separate suit.
