Taylor Swift Must Face Trial in “Shake It Off” Lawsuit,

Taylor Swift has lost her final attempt to avoid a trial in the copyright lawsuit filed against her by the songwriters behind 3LW’s “Playas Gon’ Play,” Rolling Stone reports. Sean Hall and Nathan Butler have accused the singer of lifting the chorus from the 2001 song in her hit “Shake It Off.” U.S. District Judge Michael W. Fitzgerald first denied Swift’s motion to issue a summary judgement in her favor in December, which prompted Swift to file a motion to reconsider. That motion has now been denied, with Judge Fitzgerald noting, “I still think there’s a genuine issue of material fact in part because of the expert opinion.” The case is set to go to trial January 17, 2023. Pitchfork has reached out to representatives for Swift for comment.

Hall and Butler originally filed the “Shake It Off” suit in 2017, and Judge Fitzgerald dismissed it in 2018, noting that the lyrics in question were “too brief, unoriginal and uncreative to warrant protection under the Copyright Act.” An appellate court sent the case back to Fitzgerald in 2021, ruling that the lyrics’ originality should be decided by a jury, not a judge.

Last month, Swift was sued by author Teresa La Dart over the book that accompanied the special edition CD release of her album Lover. La Dart accused Swift’s of infringing on her poetry collection of the same name, seeking damages in excess of $1 million. Swift also announced her new album Midnights from the stage at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards, where she broke the record for most Video of the Year wins.
