Author Teresa La Dart accused the singer-songwriter of infringing on her poetry collection of the same name
Taylor Swift is being sued by poet and author Teresa La Dart, who claims that Swift stole the design of La Dart’s 2010 book Lover for the book accompanying Swift’s 2019 album of the same name.
In a new copyright lawsuit filed in a Tennessee federal court and viewed by Pitchfork, La Dart says that “a number of creative elements” from her book Lover
a self-published collection of poems—were copied by Swift for her own Lover book, which came with the special edition CD release of her album.
La Dart’s lawyer claims Swift owes her in “excess of one million dollars” in damages as a result.
