Taylor Swift Not Suing Sports Bar After All

Taylor Swift Not Suing Sports Bar After All

Taylor Swift picks up a Soya Gingerbread latte from Starbucks after lunching at Richoux restaurant in St. Johns Wood, London on Friday afternoon (November 20).

Yesterday, JJJ reported on a lawsuit that the 19-year-old musician’s name was attached to regarding a sports bar in Idaho. Apparently that story was sensationalized just a tad.

BMI director Jerry W. Bailey issued the following statement: “The story originated with TMZ, which took gross creative liberty with the facts. BMI filed a routine lawsuit against a bar for not licensing music over a span of several years. (We file dozens of such lawsuits every year) On the two nights we surveyed music in the bar, there were ten songs we selected to include in the copyright infringement suit (because they were among the titles our researcher happened to hear). One was a Taylor Swift song. Our 400,000 copyright owners sign all the necessary contracts for such lawsuits when they initially join BMI. Other than by the sheer chance that Taylor owned one of the songs heard on the night our researcher visited the establishment, she personally has no direct participation in this copyright infringement suit.”

    ugh I hate tmz, always trying to stir things up. Taylor has done nothing wrong. Something is wrong with this, whenever an artist has become very successful they always have to find a way tear them down just for a news story. Since they can’t find anything, they twist the truth.

    Even “if” it was true, it wouldn’t matter. Artists should claim rights to their songs. They wrote them. It shouldn’t matter whom you are. Oh tmz how sad you are.

    Keep doing what you are doing Taylor!

    @emma:

    I could not agree with you more. You said it all.

  • Carol

    @emma: I couldn’t agree with you more taylor and other artists should be aloud to protect there songs

  • adam

    i Knew it! at most i figured it was her record company, not her. But TMZ is doing their darndest to make taylor look bad lately. take a look at their last 4 or 5 “articles” about her. they are all very much against her for some reason. also, if that isn’t enough for u just look at the pics they used of taylor in the last couple stories. Honestly, Efff TMZ i really wish harvey levin would get as$ cancer, and not at all just because of this stuff with taylor. he is a rotten little weasel who makes his fortunes off trashing others. i may sound a bit extreme but that guy seriously is a worthless piece of trash with no spine whatsoever.

    Couldn’t agree with you more adam. tmz makes me sick, thats why i come to this site where they report on celebs but dont bash them and cash in on bringing them down. it’s called Class and Jared’s got it!

  • erika

  • chelsea

    @adam: couldn’t have said it better myself

  • chelsea

    @Tommychadwich: agreed! This is the only gossip site i read. i used to hate all gossip sites cuz i thought they were all the same…until i stumbled upon justjared. The way jared talks about celebs is for the most part respectful.
