Sometimes Copyright Claim Against Spears Dismissed



An Indiana songwriter's copyright infringement lawsuit against singer Britney Spears over the song "Sometimes" has been dismissed

Fell joy. Of course she will. Pop diva Britney Spears wins the case. U.S. District Judge John D. Tinder in Indianapolis on October 31st dismissed the lawsuit by Steve Wallace, an Indiana songwriter who claims he wrote Spears' hit record "Sometimes." The reason behind is clear, the singer was able to show it wasn't copied. Thus, no money would change hands.

Wallace sued Spears, her album promoter, Sony/BMG Music Publishing Inc., and recording and publishing companies affiliated with her, claiming he wrote "Sometimes" in 1990 but did not formally copyright the song until 2003 - four years after Spears copyrighted her track. Commenting on the judge decision, David R. Baum, an attorney for Spears and her co-defendants said "I cannot emphasize enough this was not a settlement but a dismissal."
