Taylor Swift’s legal unit filed a motion in federal court on January 3rd asking a judge to clear a lawsuit filed by songwriters Nathan Butler and Sean Hall in September over allegations that Swift’s single, “Shake It Off,” violated the copyright of their single performed by 3LW, “Playas Gon’ Play.”
Swift’s team defended that the phrase “playas gon’ play” volumes to a musical cliché and that it can’t be accountable to copyright, citing earlier court findings that small phrases can’t be copyrighted while indicating to other uses of the words “players” and haters.”
