The decision considers that the fiancee of Orlando Bloom and his collaborators have not respected the copyright and have copied the rhythm and the music of the song released in 2008… Even if, of course, the translator of Teenage Dream and his team (Capitol Records, Warner Bros. Music, Max Martin, Cirkut, Sarah Hudson and Dr. Luke) were all denied having one day heard this song.

A penalty soon pronounced

During the trial, the singer explained that his staff had submitted a variety of musical excerpts, the who has subsequently inspired for his song controversy and the pace of two titles was “banal” and so fell easily into the category of copyright.
