Plagiarism Allegations Aren’t Limited to Schools

Consider this law suit:

It might be too late for Justin Bieber and Skrillex to say “Sorry.”

The duo has been sued over their No. 1 hit over alleged copyright infringement, according to court documents acquired by EW. Singer-songwriter White Hinterland, whose real name is Casey Dienel, claims “Sorry” infringes the copyright of her 2014 song “Ring the Bell.” Warner-Tamerlane Publishing Corp. and Universal Music are also named in the suit.

You can read more here at Entertainment.

I’m wondering how a scenario like this could be used in a Legal Writing problem. Students might be intrigued by having to distinguish two songs and investigating the tests that courts use.
