98.1 Minnesota's New Country/Youtube

Everyone LOVES Tim & Faiths new song, The Rest Of Our Life". The bad news is, you should never steal someone else's tune.

Songwriters Sean Carey and Beau Golden say they wrote a song back in 2014 that was sung by an Austrailian singer/songwriter named Jasmine Rae. They say the song is exactly the same in some instances...pretty hard to ignore.

The complaint was filed on Wednesday and apparently a Marketing Manager for Sony named Tim Holland, new ahead of the release, that it was a rip off. He says the reason he didn't bring it up was because he was afraid he would get fired.  Seriously? What about now dude?

Ed Sheeran is a writer on the song....so I was surprised that at this point in his career, that he'd let anything like this happen. Of course, nothing has yet been decided, whether it truly is a copyright infringement or not.

The songwriters are asking for 5 million dollars in damages, plus profits and they want royalties from the song as well.

What do you think? Here are videos of the songs. What do YOU think?
