Selena Gomez is mentioned in a $1 million lawsuit because the songwriters are claiming that her 2010 hit ‘A Year Without Rain’ is a ripoff of their song from 2005, Buy a Dog, reports Court House News. T four songwriters are Tom Luce, Brian Kroll, Matt Blackett and Lawrence Riggs and they believe that Selena’s song is virtually the same song as theirs.
The Scene is also mentioned in the lawsuit. It is only the melodies in the chorus that are similar. The lawsuit said that Selena’s team stole the melodies for her song, which is an infringement on the songwriters’ copyright. They never gave them permission to copy or borrow the creative work and since she profited from the hit song, they want their share of the money. Selena’s rep hasn’t responded to the lawsuit.
