Taylor Swift Suing Sports Bar

Country sensation Taylor Swift is suing the owners of a bar in Idaho for allegedly playing her songs without permission.

The Love Story hit-maker has teamed up with Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI), the organization which collects license fees on behalf of songwriters and distributes them as royalties, to file a copyright infringement lawsuit against The Sports Cellar venue.

The legal action comes after BMI representatives allegedly discovered that Swift’s hits were being used to entertain revelers even though the bar’s owners had failed to obtain a proper music license.

According to TMZ.com, Swift and BMI bosses are seeking unspecified damages.
