Bruno Mars & Mark Ronson Sued Over ‘Uptown funk’ for the Second time
Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson have been sued for the second time by an artist alleging they committed copyright infringement on their massive 2014 hit “Uptown Funk.”
The electro-funk band Collage, who Mars and Ronson have said influenced the creation of the track, filed a lawsuit accusing the pop duo of “deliberately and clearly” copying their song “Young Girl.
Collage seeks unspecified damages and profits for the alleged infringement, and any payout from the case could be sizeable based on the success of “Uptown Funk”.
The track is the biggest hit of Mars’ career, having sold more than 6.1 million copies and netting about $100,000 per week for streaming on Spotify.
