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!!!

sarah palin uses 911 image for self

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:
