Carly Rae Jepsen and Adam Young may be ending up on the wrong side of a lawsuit for copyright infringement. Their tune, "Good Time," which was a hit in 2012, will be cut off from royalties for the song due to the fact that the smash track has artist Ally Burnett saying she was ripped off by Jepsen.

According to TMZ on Jan. 31, Burnett claims the "Good Time" collaboration was a copyright infringement of her song called "Ah, It's a Love Song."

Enter BMI, an organization established in 1939 to represent musicians and their products in the field of music rights management.

This non-profit is now in the middle, trying to reach an agreement with Burnett on behalf of Jepsen and Young. In order to show willing, $804,156 worth of royalties from "Good Time" have been placed in escrow. This reportedly will be the case until Carly Rae Jepsen, Adam Young, and Ally Burnett see the case resolved.

As a result of the escrow account, Ally Burnett is said to have agreed to drop the lawsuit. Still, that doesn't mean this artist will get the money. It's anybody's guess where those funds will go but they won't go anywhere until there is complete resolution of the matter.

That said, did Carly Rae Jepsen and Adam Young lose their lawsuit with Ally Burnett for copyright infringement? No, not yet and maybe not ever. The whole situation is still up in the air, and it's not a good time for anyone while this story regarding who sang it first is being ironed out.
