Bieber faces copyright lawsuit

Justin Bieber and Usher are being sued for 10 million US dollars by two Virginia songwriters over alleged copyright infringement.

Devin Copeland and Mareio Overton claim Bieber's song Somebody To Love contains numerous lyrical and stylistic similarities to the song they wrote in 2008 by the same name.

The duo have filed a lawsuit in federal court in Norfolk, Virginia, claiming that numerous producers conspired to copy their song. A message left with a law firm representing Bieber was not immediately returned.

The lawsuit said Copeland and Overton provided a copy of their song to musical promoters, who in turn provided it to representatives of Usher.

Justin's song peaked at number 15 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart in 2010 and was certified platinum.
