Carly Rae Jepsen

A little-known singer/songwriter has won a $800,000 (£500,000) windfall after a judge ruled she should see some of the profits from Carly Rae Jepsen's 2012 Owl City collaboration Good Time.

Singer Ally Burnett sued the singer, Owl City and their label for copyright infringement, claiming the hit heavily sampled her tune Ah, It's a Love Song.

The judge in the case agreed, and he has ordered music bosses at BMI, the company that collects the royalties for Good Time, to pay up to the tune of $804,156 (£502,600).
