Ed Sheeran is being sued for the similarity between Thinking Out Loud and Marvin Gaye’s Let’s Get it On. This makes absolutely no sense - yes, Thinking Out Loud uses similar chords, but you can’t own chords, and if you could, that would be making a mockery of how music has been made for centuries.

"Your manuscript is both good and original; but the part that is good is not original, and the part that is original is not good." -- attributed to Mark Twain
