Isn’t This Precious? Judge Uses Taylor Swift Songs To Rule For Taylor Swift
A California judge hearing a copyright lawsuit filed against Taylor Swift has ruled for Swift in a very unique way. The judge said stop wasting the court's time using Swift's own lyrics.
Jessie Braham sued Swift saying she took lyrics from his song "Haters Gone Hate" and used them in her song "Shake It Off,"
Where Braham's song includes the lyrics, "Haters gone hate, playas gone play. Swift's song sings, "'Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play. And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate"
Judge Gail J. Standish's ruling ended with this conclusion:
"At present, the Court is not saying that Braham can never, ever, ever get his case back in court. But, for now, we have got problems, and the Court is not sure Braham can solve them.
"As currently drafted, the Complaint has a blank space — one that requires Braham to do more than write his name. And, upon consideration of the Court's explanation ... Braham may discover that mere pleading Band-Aids will not fix the bullet holes in his case. At least for the moment, Defendants have shaken off this lawsuit."
