Taylor Swift responds to copyright lawsuit against her hit song ‘Shake It Off’

Taylor Swift, an American singer-songwriter, and her legal team have responded to a copyright lawsuit accusing her of stealing lyrics for her popular song “Shake It Off.”

According to Fox News, Sean Hall and Nathan Butler, the songwriters of “3LW’s” 2000 song “Playas Gon’ Play,” have accused Swift of stealing their work.

Swift’s attorney argued in a motion submitted to a federal court that Hall and Butler were just looking to cash in on the success of Swift’s song.

According to Swift, the song was inspired by “experiences in my life and, in particular, unrelenting public scrutiny of my personal life, ‘clickbait’ reporting, public manipulation, and other forms of negative personal criticism which I learned I just needed to shake off and focus on my music.” BKM/ Expat Media
