Ed Sheeran is being accused of plagiarism over his 2014 song 'Thinking Out Loud' by the family of Ed Townsend (he co-wrote Marvin Gaye's hit 'Let's Get It On'.)

Townsend's family says Sheeran lifted the harmony, melody, and rhythm from the 1973 hit for his Song Of The Year track; funny how Marvin Gaye's tunes inspire so many lawsuits (remember 'Blurred Lines'?).
