Lady Gaga Being Sued AGAIN!!!

8 Aug

Lady Gaga is being sued again– this time for copyright infringement. According to the National Post, Gaga has been slapped with a lawsuit claiming her hit song “Judas” is a ripoff of a 1999 song by a singer named Rebecca F.

The similarities between the two songs may not be purely coincidence since Rebecca F’s former bass player, Brian Gaynor, is now employed by a music company that wrote 17 songs on Gaga’s recent Born This Way album. Her lawyer Chris Niro told TMZ: ‘Though the songs are different styles, the composition is the same and the chorus is the same melody.

The lawsuit filed by Francescatti, names Gaga, along with Interscope Records, Universal Music Group, DJ White Shadow and sound engineer Brian Joseph Gaynor as participants in creating the single “Judas,” a song which bares “a substantial similarity” to “Juda” because Gaga allegedly “copied and incorporated substantial, original portions” of the work, though it was previously copyrighted and recorded with Gaynor.

‘The 90’s singer is seeking recognition for what she created.’
Rebecca Francescatti, who sings under the name Rebecca F, is suing for unspecified damages.

This is the second lawsuit the singer will be fighting in the space of two months. In June she was sued by U.S. consumer attorneys 1-800-Law-Firm for profiting from the sale of $3.99 ‘We Pray for Japan’ bracelets.
