Beyonce Knowles Wins Copyright Infringement Case



A US District Court has dismissed a copyright infringement lawsuit brought against Beyonce of her Grammy winning hit "Baby Boy".

Good luck sides with Beyonce Knowles. The singer-songwriter won a copyright infringement lawsuit brought by singer-songwriter Jennifer Armour in 2005 over her Grammy winning hit "Baby Boy".

In her lawsuit Armour claimed Beyonce and the other writers/producers of the hit, including Jay-Z, Sean Paul and Scott Storch, took lyrics from her song, "Got a Little Bit of Love for You", which she submitted to various studios including Columbia Records and Atlantic Recording Corporations, record labels for Beyonce, back in March 2003.

As a matter of fact, Beyonce's song was completed in February of 2003 and released on her album "Dangerously in Love" in June of the same year. Furthermore, a side-by-side comparison of the two songs to look for substantial similarity did by the court proved the songs were so different that both songs were repeatedly said as "substantially dissimilar" from one another, leading a US federal judge to at last dismiss the infringement lawsuit.

In response to the ruling, Beyonce commented "It's unfortunate that lawsuits such as this one occur, but I am grateful and relieved to have this behind me and I am eager to move on."
