BREAKING: ARTY Sues Marshmello For Copyright Infringement Of His Remix of One Republic’s ‘I Lived’

News has broken that Russian producer, ARTY has officially filed a lawsuit for copyright infringement against Marshmello. The suit stems from the similarities in melodies on ARTY's official remix for One Republic's massive hit, ‘I Lived' and Marshmello's chart-topping hit with Bastille ‘Happier.'

The Tennessean broke the story, after confirming it with ARTY's Nashville based copyright lawyer, Richard Busch. Busch is one of the biggest heavyweights in the musical intellectual property game, having secured wins for Marvin Gaye's estate against Robin Thicke for his track ‘Blurred Lines'.

Claims Of Directly Copying

ARTY's remix was released nearly five years ago in 2014, and since that time, ARTY and marshmello have crossed paths several times. The suit claims this is enough proof to demonstrate marshmello was more than aware of the commercially successful remix.

‘Happier' topped out on the #2 spot of the Billboard charts and is certified double platinum in the United States. In case you need a refresher, take a listen below…and we have to admit, similarities exist. This story is developing, and we will continue to provide up to date information as it becomes available.
