Carly Rae Jepsen, the pop singer who has had a few hit songs including “Good Time,” has lost in the copyright infringement lawsuit which alleged that she and Owl city borrowed from another song, according to a UPI report on Saturday.

Ally Burnett, a singer, claimed that Carly Rae Jepsen and Owl City borrowed from her song “Ah, It’s a Love Song” when they made their song “Good Time.” It will reportedly take Jepsen’s record label, BMI, $800,000 to settle the legal challenge brought by Burnett regarding Jepsen’s song.

The lawsuit was filed by Burnett against several publishing companies in October 2012, as well as Jepsen, Owl City, and BMI. The lawsuit said that the defendants stole Burnett’s unique vocal motif when they made and released the “Good Time” song.

Even though a settlement which totaled $804,156 was agreed upon between BMI and Burnett, there was no ruling in the case as of yet.

Carly Rae Jepsen, 28, is a Canadian singer-songwriter from Mission, British Columbia. Her break-through hit was 2011’s “Call Me Maybe” which she co-wrote with Tavish Crowe. She has been nominated for many awards in the music field. In 2012, she was named Billboard magazine’s “Rising Star.”
