Post Malone Resolves ‘Circles’ Copyright Infringement Lawsuit
Post Malone has reached a settlement in the copyright infringement lawsuit over his hit song “Circles,” putting an end to the legal dispute.
Popular singer and songwriter Post Malone has successfully settled the copyright infringement lawsuit related to his chart-topping song “Circles.” The legal battle came to a close with both parties reaching an agreement, thereby avoiding further litigation.
The lawsuit was initially filed by Tyler Armes, a Canadian musician and songwriter, who claimed that he had co-written “Circles” with Post Malone and was seeking credit and royalties for his contributions. Armes asserted that he was involved in the song’s creation during a recording session in August 2018 but was not acknowledged as a co-writer when the track was released in 2019.
Post Malone, whose real name is Austin Richard Post, disputed these claims, stating that Armes had not substantially contributed to the song’s composition. The case went to court, where both parties presented their arguments and evidence.
After a period of negotiation, the two parties have now reached a settlement, the details of which remain undisclosed. The resolution prevents the case from going to trial and allows both parties to move forward without further legal entanglements.
“Circles,” which was released in 2019, went on to become a major hit, reaching the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and staying there for multiple weeks. The song’s success helped solidify Post Malone’s position as a leading figure in the music industry.
With the settlement of the “Circles” copyright infringement lawsuit, Post Malone can now focus on his music career without the burden of ongoing legal issues. The resolution of the case demonstrates the importance of addressing intellectual property disputes promptly and fairly in order to maintain a healthy creative environment in the music industry.
