Carly Rae Jepson and Owl City have been sued for plagiarism over their hit song “Good Time,” according to a Jan. 31 TMZ report. Singer Ally Burnett sued Jepson, Owl City and their label, among others for copyright infringement in 2012. Burnett alleged in part, that Jepson and Owl City infringed on her song “Ah, It’s a Love Song,” for their “Good Time” hit. While no ruling has been made in the case, BMI publishing company has reached an agreement with Burnett to place over $800,000 into an escrow account.

Spin reports however, that Burnett has dropped her royalty claims from other defendants other than Owl City’s Adam Young and Jepson, and BMI, the royalty administrator can now pay the $800,000 back to the other copyright holders.

“Adam continues to defend the plaintiff's claim and we are confident that the Court will ultimately rule in his favor and dismiss the claim,” Young’s lawyer said in a statement.

Jepson for her part has other matters on her mind like her Broadway debut in Rodgers and Hammerstein's “Cinderella.” The singer will play the title character, and star alongside actress Fran Drescher, who will play her wicked stepmother, Madame, UPI.com reports.
