Justin Bieber along with country duet Dan + Shay have been sued for copyright infringement over their song “10,000 Hours,” which won a Grammy Award in 2021.

International Manufacturing Concepts, Melomega music and Sound Gems filed the lawsuit Thursday, alleging that Bieber and the duo of Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney “stole the core portion” referring to the chorus, verse and hook of “The First Time Baby Is A Holiday,” a 1973 song originally written by Palmer Rakes and Frank Fioravanti, according to documents obtained by People.

What are the companies asking Justin Bieber to do?

The companies, which claim to own the song and seek credit, point out in the lawsuit that there are “unmistakable similarities” between their song and “10,000 Hours,” noting that the latter wasn’t released until 2014, some five years before it came out.

Thanks to “10,000 Hours” Bieber along with Dan + Shay won in 2020 two AMAs, an iHeartRadio Music Award and a Billboard Award, plus in 2021 won a Grammy Award for best country duo/group performance for the song.

Other lawsuits against Justin Bieber for his songs

This is not the first time Bieber has been sued, as in 2016 another artist claimed that the singer, along with DJ Skrillex, stole the hook of “Sorry” from one of his songs, although later the singer filed to have her own suit dismissed.
