Radiohead Sues Lana Del Rey for Copyright Infringement

Rumor has it that Radiohead might sue Lana Del Rey for copyright infringement over her songGet Freeand its similarities to their breakout hit,Creep. Lana Del Rey offered Radiohead 40% of the publishing money from the song, but Lana alleges that Radiohead and their attorneys will only accept 100%. Del Rey posted in a tweet “It’s true about the lawsuit. Although I know my song wasn’t inspired byCreep, Radiohead feels it was and want 100% of the publishing – I offered up to 40 over the last few months but they will only accept 100. Their lawyers have been relentless, so we will deal with it in court.” Radiohead has not made a statement.

The irony of the situation is Radiohead’s claim is over a song that they were sued over. The Hollies sued Radiohead and won when they heard similarities between The Hollies’The Air I BreatheandCreep. Now two members of The Hollies are credited as co-writers onCreep. Check back later for more information on the potential litigation.
