Writers allege copyright infringement in suit

Two Virginia songwriters are suing Justin Bieber and Usher for $10 million for copyright infringement.

Devin Copeland and Mareio Overton claim Bieber’s song “Somebody to Love” contains numerous lyrical and stylistic similarities to the song they wrote in 2008 by the same name.

The duo filed a lawsuit Thursday in federal court in Norfolk, Va.

The lawsuit says Copeland and Overton provided a copy of their song to musical promoters, who in turn provided it to representatives of Usher.

Ducking fan

Megastar singer Justin Bieber is known for his slick dance moves onstage. But spinning away from a mash-up between security guards and a rogue fan has become the hit of his concert in Dubai.

Mobile phone video popped up across the Web on Monday showing a male fan rushing toward the 19-year-old performer, who was sitting at a piano on the edge of the stage.

Security guards tackled the young man from behind, spilling into Bieber and tipping over the piano.

Bieber twisted away and then strolled offstage while the guards dragged away the fan.

The concert Sunday resumed after a short break and Bieber appeared calm and unharmed.
