Uptown Funk gets sued again

Uptown Funk gets sued again
They say ‘Where there’s a hit, there’s a writ’, but it’s getting silly with Mark Ronson’s Uptown Funk. The mega smash was sued in 2016 for copyright infringement by a group called Collage, and a few other people have said the song borrows from them, but now there’s a new lawsuit.
Yep, Lastrada Entertainment are suing because, allegedly, 48 seconds of vocals match ‘their’ track More Bounce to the Ounce, and some eagle eyed lawyer has found Ronson actually saying the artists behind bounce, Roger and Zapp, are influences. 
It’s not just Ronson on the sharp end, as Lastrada are also suing Apple, Sony, Spotify and presumably a passing poodle.
