Bruno Mars And Mark Ronson Sued Again Over Copyright Song


US electro funk band Collage is suing Bruno Mars and
Mark Ronson for allegedly copying parts of its song for
use in their 2014 hit track Uptown Funk.
The complaint, obtained by Pitchfork, was filed against the
pop duo for "deliberately and clearly" copying their 1983
single Young Girls.
Sony Music Entertainment, Warner/Chappell Music,
Atlantic Records, RCA Records and others are listed
alongside Mars and Ronson in the lawsuit.
The 1980s Minneapolis funk band claims Uptown Funk is
"an obvious, strikingly and/or substantially similar copy" of
their song.
They listed "the distinct funky specifically noted and timed
consistent guitar riffs present throughout the
compositions".
And the "virtually if not identical bass notes and sequence,
rhythm, structure, crescendo of horns and synthesizers"
as the main violations.
This is the second time Mars and Ronson have been
accused of copyright infringement over the song.
In May, funk group The Gap Band got 17% of all publishing
royalties and writing credits for giving up sections of their
1979 hit Oops Upside Your Head.
A third group called The Sequence have also alleged the
duo copied their song, but have yet to file a complaint.
Collage is seeking damages and profits from Mars,
Ronson and other producers involved.
The complaint was filed by the only living member of
Collage, Larry White, and the estates of two others.
Representatives for Ronson and Mars have not yet
commented on the allegations.
