Musical “magpie” Ed Sheeran in court over Shape Of You song theft claims

Ed Sheeran is a musical “genius” but also a musical “magpie” who borrows from other people’s work when he’s writing his pop songs.

Or at least, that’s what lawyers working for musicians Sami Chokri and Ross O’Donoghue claimed in the UK high court on Friday.
