|ED SHEERAN has settled a US$20m copyright infringement claim against him in the United States Authentic Byron Jones Jersey , over his hit song “Photograph.”
Songwriters Thomas Leonard and Martin Harrington sued the singer last June, claiming his hit ballad had a similar structure to their song, “Amazing.”
A lawyer for the pair confirmed to the BBC the claim had now been settled.
Leonard and Harrington’s track was released by former “X Factor” winner Matt Cardle in 2012.
On Friday, court papers were lodged dismissing the case “with prejudice Authentic Maliek Collins Jersey ,” stipulating that a California federal court would enforce the terms of an agreement.
Richard Busch, who represented Harrington and Leonard, would not comment on the settlement terms.
A spokeswoman for Sheeran’s record company, Atlantic Records Authentic Jaylon Smith Jersey , told the BBC it did not comment on stories relating to copyright issues.
The songwriters originally claimed the chorus of the two songs shared 39 identical notes, with similarities “instantly recognizable to the ordinary observer.”
They submitted the chord structures for both tracks in court documents.
Busch is the same lawyer who won a case for the family of the late soul singer Marvin Gaye.
He successfully sued Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams for copyright infringement last year over their single “Blurred Lines,” winning a US$7.4m settlement.

RIO DE JANEIRO， Aug. 9 (Xinhua) -- Argentina beat defending champions Russia 3-1 (25-18， 18-25， 25-18， 25-21) in a Pool B match of the men's volleyball tournament at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games here on Tuesday.
It was the second victory of the South Americans over the powerhouse Russia in two months with the previous one a 3-0 result at the FIVB World League on June 26. Argentina improved to a 2-0 win-loss record in the preliminary round while Russia fell to 1-1 with three more pool matches to play.
Bruno Lima led the Argentine scoring with 18 points and Facundo Conte and Pablo Crer added 16 and 11 respectively.
The smaller Argentineans outblocked Russia 11-7 with Crer and Sebastian Sole registering 5 and 3 blocks respectively. The winners also outserved their opponents 6-3.
The Russians were led by Egor Kliuka with 16 points.
"The key was the force of the team，" said Argentina coach Julio Velasco. "We are proud and also humble especially because we have great teams ahead， especially Poland. The match puts us close to the quarterfinals."
RIO DE JANEIRO， Oct. 20 (Xinhua) -- A Brazilian sports tribunal has reversed a decision to suspend the result of Flamengo's 2-1 victory over local rivals Flamengo last week.
The Sports Justice Court said a prosecutor investigating the Brazilian Serie A match had found there was no improper conduct by match officials.
"There is no longer a reason for the suspension and the case has been dropped，" the court said in a statement late on Thursday.
The controversy surrounded a decision by referee Sandro Ricci to annul a Fluminense goal for offside in the second half of the match in Volta Redonda.
While the decision was correct， Fluminense claim Ricci acted on advice from outside officials， who had benefitted from seeing TV replays.
Football's laws prohibit officials from using video technology to influence decisions. STJD initially said it would adjudicate on the case within a month.
Thursday's decision leaves Flamengo just four points behind Serie A leaders Palmeiras with eight matches remaining in the season. Flamengo are chasing their first league title since 2009 while Palmeiras have not won since 1994.
