Owl City And Carly Rae Jepsen Sued Over “Good Time”

It happens all the time: a small artist, songwriter or producer file suit against a much bigger artist for stealing their song idea. Now it’s happening to Owl City and Carly Rae Jepsen.

The Hollywood Reporter divulges that Allyson Nichole Burnett (who performs as Ally “Cupcake” Burnett) is suing for copyright infringement, stating that “Good Time” steals the “unique vocal motif” used in her song, “Ah, It’s A Love Song.”

Not familiar with Burnett’s song? Compare the two below.


Burnett’s track was licensed to MTV and used on The Hills and Friendzone.

These cases are usually dismissed quickly, but THR feels Burnett may have a case given the sort of exposure her license on those MTV shows grants.
