Carly Rae Jepsen & Owl City's Good Time Is Ruled A Rip-Off In Court! Get The Copycat Deets HERE!

Well this is the total opposite of an AH-Mazing evening!

Carly Rae Jepsen and Owl City's hit track Good Time was sued for for copyright infringement back in 2012…

And it looks like they just lost their case!

BMI (the company who collects royalties from the song) is now being order to pay over $800k to the lesser known vocalist Ally Burnett, who the song apparently rips off!

If you listen closely, Ally's ear candy, Ah, It's a Love Song, does sound trés similar - but your humble opinion is ALWAYS appreciated.

Do you think the ruling was fair?!

UPDATE: There has so far been NO ruling in this case by the court. The plaintiff actually dismissed her claims against BMI and agreed that royalties deposited by BMI can be released to the lawyers for other defendants in the case. That part of the claim has nothing to do with Carly Rae or Owl City.

Ch-ch-check out both videos…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Seriously yuck!

It's almost hard to believe that anyone would do this, but it seems Sarah Palin has actually been using a touching and emotional 9/11 image to promote herself!

There is a famous photo of New York City firefighters putting up a U.S. flag on 9/11, but that image is owned by North Jersey Media Group Inc. However, that apparently didn't stop Sarah from posting the image on her Facebook page with her PAC logo at the bottom of it!

Now, a lawsuit has reportedly been filed over copyright infringement. In the lawsuit, the publisher commented:

Kanye West SUED! Did He Mine For Music That Wasn't His On 2005's Gold Digger?

kanye west golddigger

As if his lady love Kim Kardashian isn't dealing with ENOUGH legal drama right now!

It appears Kanye West is now facing his very own, multimillion-dollar lawsuit…for infringement on his 2005 smash hit, Gold Digger!

YEAH! Feels a little late in the game to be throwing this one at him NOW, right?

Perhaps! But allow us to explain:

So while the track, off of Yeezy's album Late Registration, mainly samples Ray Charles' I Got A Woman, it also allegedly borrows David Pryor's "get down" chant from his 1974 track with Thunder & Lightning, Bumpin' Bus Stop…at least 50 TIMES!

However, the musician was incredibly sick back in 2005, and passed away in 2006, never realizing where his voice had ended up!

As attorney Courtney M. Coates explains:

There was only One Direction for Doniya Malik's website to go- in the bin!

Zayn Malik's kid sister was using big bro's band to sell homemade buttons and T-shirts and other merchandise to make a little extra cash.

But the psychology student's side biz was quickly shut down by 1D's manager, who said she did NOT have the rights to the band's name and logo!

EXCLUSIVE! Kardashians' Khroma Vs. Chroma Battle Heats Up

Looks like this beauty dramz is not going to settle down anytime soon.

And we kinda love it!

Chroma Beauty, the high-end makeup line that has accused the Kardashians of stealing their name and confuzzling their customers, has hit back at Khloe Kardashian's claims that her and her sisters' name for their Khroma Beauty line came about organically.

Michael Rey, co-owner of Chroma, commented on the name issue exclusively to CoCoPerez.com, saying:

It's a shame that Boldface Licensing and Branding, the company that teamed with the Kardashians in creating their new makeup line, didn't do their homework. The Kardashians might have considered themselves clever when picking the name 'Khroma' for their new makeup line and spelling it with a K, but they ought to have known that we, Chroma have been doing business from our studio right here in Beverly Hills using 'Chroma' as a trademark for the past 12 years on our quality products and services. It seems hard to believe that the Kardashians and Boldface Licensing and Branding had not heard of, or seen our studio. Their actions have caused great concern and confusion with our clientele. Therefore, we have taken the action of filing both a lawsuit for trademark infringement and a motion for preliminary injunction to prevent further damage to our brand. We did not seek this battle but we will continue to do whatever necessary to defend the Chroma brand.

Uh oh, looks like the gloves are off!

And lest we forget, there is still the issue of that other Kroma makeup line suing the sisters for trademark infringement.

We're exhausted just trying to keep all the names straight!

Can't they all just kiss and make up?
