Did Beyonce steal "Baby Boy"??!!

Okay lady this was like three years ago but alright...somebody is suing Bey for "Baby Boy" lyrics being "stolen". Here we go again...

Story from
The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals received a copyright infringement case Wednesday filed by a Minnesota woman claiming Beyonce's 2003 hit "Baby Boy" illegally uses lyrics from her song, "Got a Little Bit of Love for You."

Jennifer Armour of Shakopee, Minn already had her lawsuit dismissed by a Houston judge, but the woman appealed her case, believing it should be heard by a jury, reports the Associated Press.

Beyonce, 26, did not attend Wednesday's hearing, which took place before a three-judge panel.

Armour's attorney, Dana Kirk, told the judges that an expert analyzed Armour's slow and melodic version alongside Knowles' song featuring Sean Paul and that the two are substantially similar.

But Cynthia Arato, representing Knowles, said the standard for copyright cases is what an ordinary person hears, not an expert's analysis. The judge who heard the case in Houston last year had ruled the two songs were "substantially dissimilar."
