One of three lawsuits filed against Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars‘ ‘Uptown Funk’ has been settled.
In 2016, Ronson and Mars were sued for copyright infringement by Minneapolis funk band Collage, who claimed the pair’s 2014 track was “an obvious, strikingly and/or substantially similar copy” of their 1983 single ‘Young Girls’ (hear both tracks below).
TMZ now reports that both sides have agreed to drop the case permanently and that it isn’t known whether there was any financial settlement involved.
Two other lawsuits remain open against ‘Uptown Funk’.
