Jessie J sued for copyright infringement over 'Domino'

British pop sensation Jessie J is facing a copyright infringement case suit over claims that parts of her hit single 'Domino' were lifted from an American male singer's own work.

The lawsuit, which was filed in California by musician Will Loomis, names Jessica Cornish, Universal Music Group, Lava Records, and Universal Republic Records as defendants in a case that suggests large portions of his 2008 song 'Bright Red Chords' were taken for 'Domino'.

Chris Arledge, the man's lawyer, said in an official statement: "Mr. Loomis never consented to the use of his song and we look forward to obtaining an appropriate remedy from the court for this clear infringement."

Loomis has since uploaded a video to YouTube of his track played side-by-side with 'Domino' so that the striking similarities can be heard publicly.
