Leona Lewis song battle heading to court
Leona Lewis' representatives are heading to
London's High Court to secure the right to release her new single
following plagiarism accusations from a Swedish DJ.
Dance music producer Avicii alleges Lewis has
used a sample from one of his songs in her latest track Collide
without his permission. The DJ - real name Tim Bergling - has
requested an injunction to stop the impending release of the single
and his complaint will be heard in court on Monday (08Aug11).
If his request is upheld, it will halt the
planned release of Collide on 4 September (11), according to
Britain's The Guardian. Lewis has previously denied allegations of
illegal sampling, insisting Avicii "was aware" of the usage and
even agreed "publishing splits for himself and his manager".
