Selena Gomez Sued for Similarity in 'A Year Without Rain'


A band named Luce claimed their 2005 song was ripped off in the chorus for Gomez's 2010 song.

Selena Gomez's name is dragged to a $1 million lawsuit filed by a band named Luce. The plaintiffs, Tom Luce, Brian Kroll, Lawremce Riggs and Matt Blackett, claimed that Gomez's song "A Year Without Rain" stole the sound from the chorus of Luce's 2005 song "Buy a Dog".

Luce said Gomez's song, which was co-written by Lindy Robbins and Tobby Gad, was "virtually identical" to theirs which appeared on the group's second album "Never Ending". Both Robbins and Gad were also named in the lawsuit as co-defendants. The band accused Gomez and her co-defendants of infringing on their copyright.

"A Year Without Rain" was picked as the title track of Gomez's second album which was released in 2010. It was performed with her band The Scene.

According to Courthouse News Service, the complaint stated that "Buy a Dog" was "a No. 1 record on several radio stations around the United States, including WRLT in Nashville and KFOG in San Francisco, at both of which it was among the 10 most played records for the entire year of 2005".

Gomez's camp has not given a comment about the lawsuit.
