Judge has ruled that Mariah Carey's 'It's Like That' is not copying Rachele Chafir's 'sexy'.
Mariah Carey has been cleared from copyright infringement case that she has been accused with. Federal judge has ruled out that Carey's 'It's Like That' is copying materials from singer Rachele Chafir's 'Sexy'.
U.S. District Court Judge Kimba Wood decided that the case is not strong enough to proof that Carey and her team have used Chafir's song which is claimed hardly resembling Mariah's hit. "It was the right decision," Carey's lawyer Ilene Farkas told MTV. "The record was clear in this case."
Chafir filed the lawsuit back in 2006, claiming that 'It's Like That' has used her song's chorus, music and key tones. She had apparently copyrighted 'Sexy' back in 2004.
Done with the case, Carey will go on with her album that is rumored to be titled 'Sweet Soul Odyssey'. It is planned to be released December 4 via Island with the first single dropped first in October.
