Ed Sheeran may regret Photograph that led to $20m copyright case

It was a simple ballad inspired by taking a picture of his beloved. But Ed Sheeranmay be regretting ever picking up that camera, after settling a $20m (£16m) plagiarism lawsuit for the song Photograph. The singer was accused of copying “note-for-note” from a song called Amazing, released by the X Factor winner Matt Cardle five years ago. Songwriters Thomas Leonard and Martin Harrington sued Sheeran, accusing him of “unabashedly taking credit” for their work.
