A plagiarism lawsuit levied against Paramore, alleging that the band had lifted their 2010 track "The Only Exception," has been dropped. The suit was filed by Tenspoke Indies, a Florida rock band.
The group claimed that Paramore had ripped off their track "Starlighter" in myriad ways, "including but not limited to, similarities in the introductions, arrangements, the chord progression, the key, the melody, the lyrical theme, the rhythm and tempo of both songs."
Last week Paramore posted an official statement on their website regarding the outcome:
"We'd like to let Paramore fans know that yesterday the frivolous lawsuit claiming Paramore plagiarized another band's work regarding 'The Only Exception' was officially dropped. There was never a doubt in our minds that the case would go any further, as this song, which Paramore wrote every note of, is very personal to them and one they are extremely proud of."
