Ed Sheeran has been awarded over $1.1 million in legal fees following his “Shape of You” copyright case.
According to Rolling Stone, Sheeran won the copyright battle in England for his 2017 single “Shape of You” back in April. A judge ruled that Sheeran and his co-defendants, songwriters Steven McCutcheon and Johnny McDaid, did not plagiarized Sami Chokri’s 2015 song “Oh Why.”
A different judge will oversee and assess the costs and damages that need to be paid. The judge could also decide to dismiss costs and damages, which would lower how much Chokri and O’Donoghue owe.
