2012 : Songwriter Earl Shuman files a copyright infringement lawsuit against singer
Alicia Keys, claiming her Top-20 hit single "Girl On Fire" sounds too much like Shuman's 1970 song "Lonely Boy," which ended up being recorded by Eddie Holman as "Hey There Lonely Girl." The suit is kind of vague on the details, but apparently it comes down to a few notes; such trivial bits have won lawsuits before, however.
