Jessie J Slapped With Copyright Infringement Suit

Brit pop diva Jessie J may have had her biggest stateside hit with “Domino,” but an artist from California is crying foul, claiming that sections of the song were lifted directly from his earlier release “Bright Red Chords.”

According to Billboard.com, singer/songwriter Will Loomis, of Newport, California, has named Jessica Cornish (Jessie J’s real name), Universal Music Group, Lava Records, and Universal Republic Records as defendants in the copyright infringement suit.

“Domino,” which peaked at #6 and held a position on Billboard’s Hot 100 for 24 weeks, was released in 2011. Loomis’ tune preceded it by three years, having first been made available in 2008.

Listen to the two tracks and be the judge.

Loomis and the Lust’s “Bright Red Chords:”

Loomis and the Lust’s lawyer, Chris Aldredge released a statement on the charges. “Mr. Loomis never consented to the use of his song and we look forward to obtaining an appropriate remedy from the court for this clear infringement.”

Several months ago, a video interweaving Loomis’ vocals with those of Jessie J, all on top of “Domino,” was posted to the Loomis and the Lust YouTube page. That video was just today blocked by Universal Media Group on the grounds of copyright infringement.
