One Direction May Be Sued by Def Leppard for Plagiarism

One Direction may face a lawsuit against Def Leppard due to alleged similarities between the group's hit song "Midnight Memories" and rock legend's 1987 anthem "Pour Some Sugar On Me."

A comment from a "source" (according to the Daily Mirror) close to Def Leppard can be found below.

“Music lawyers will routinely scour hits like this one to see if there is any evidence that a band has either copied or cleverly mimicked a Def Leppard song. These cases can often take weeks to sort out because we are not talking about peanuts here – the 1D album is selling millions and if the title track goes out as a single it will generate even more money. Everyone is staying silent at this stage but it’s clear the two songs sound alike – which has been enough for Def Leppard’s aides to pose questions to their legal team.”
