One of the lawsuits that claimed Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson copied Uptown Funk has been settled.
TMZ reports the suit filed by Minneapolis band Collage claimed Uptown “is an obvious, strikingly and/or substantially similar copy” of their 1983 song Young Girls.
Both sides have agreed to drop the case. There’s no word on what kind of financial considerations were given, if any.
Mars and Ronson still have suits pending on Uptown Funk. Infringement cases are pending based on the songs Sequence’s Funk You Up and Zapp’s More Bounce To The Ounce.
