Ed Sheeran , Tim McGraw and Faith Hill Sued for Copyright Infringement Over 'The Rest of Our Life '. The plaintiffs' attorney tells CountryLiving.com they have not yet heard from the defendants. Most Popular. Getty Images. By Eileen Reslen. Jan 11, 2018.

The plaintiffs are represented by Nashville-based attorney Richard Busch, who successfully won a trial for the family of Marvin Gaye in the 2015 "Blurred Lines" lawsuit – which initially resulted in $7.5 million judgment in favor of Gaye's family. Busch also took on Sheeran in a $20 million copyright case over another hit, "Photograph." A settlement in that case was reached, with the songwriters being added to the song's credits while also gaining a significant share of royalties from the tune.

Also key to these new allegations is the assertion by the plaintiffs that Sony Music Entertainment – the parent label of Arista Nashville, which released McGraw and Hill's first-ever collaborative LP last November – was aware of the copying of Carey and Golden's song. "It very well may have been an agent of Sony Music Entertainment who provided the other defendants herein with access to the Song," the complaint states.

In addition to Hill and McGraw, Sheeran's "The Rest of Our Life" co-writers Johnny McDaid and Amy Wadge, along with music publishers Sony/ATV, Universal Polygram, WB Music and others are named in the lawsuit. Plaintiffs Carey and Golden are seeking injunctive relief and at least $5 million in actual damages plus profits, in addition to a running royalty and an award of attorney's fees and costs.
