Carly Rae-Jepsen, the little darling of the music scene, is being sued over alleged copyright infringement for “Good Time.” Ally Burnett, who is a singer and song writer, accuses Jepsen and Adam Young of lifting the song “Good Time” off one of her tracks “Ah, It’s A Love Song.”

Owl City’s Adam Young and Jepsen have come to an agreement with Burnett where a little over $800,000 in royalties from that song will go into an escrow account. It will remain there until it is decided if this song was close enough to Burnett’s song to constitute infringement, according to the New York Daily News on Jan. 31.

Burnett has agreed to drop her lawsuit in exchange for the money in escrow waiting for a judge to decide its rightful owner. Jepsen and Young took “Good Time” to Billboards top 10 hit list. Does Jepsen’s “Good Time” sound like “Ah It’s a Love Song” by Burnett? You decide, listen to both tracks below.
