Representatives for Taylor Swift this week rejected a copyright infringement lawsuit filed by two songwriters over Swift’s hit song “Shake It Off” as a “ridiculous claim.”
Reuters shares that the songwriters said in a lawsuit filed in U.S. federal court in Los Angeles that Swift’s song used the phrase “players, they gonna play, and haters, they gonna hate,” that they had coined for a 2001 song “Playas Gon’ Play” by R&B girl group 3LW.
Swift’s lyric from her 2014 hit “Shake It Off” is: “the players gonna play, play, play, play, play, and the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate.”
The songwriters are seeking unspecified damages and a jury trial.
