Britney Spears Sued For Copyright Infringement

BBC: Last week Steve Wallace, an Indiana songwriter, filed a complaint in federal court against Spears and affiliated companies Sony/BMG. Apparently he wrote the song "Sometimes" 15 years ago but did not formally copyright the track until 2003. The song first appeared on Spears' debut album Baby One More Time in 1999 and on 2004's Greatest Hits: My Prerogative...As keenly pointed out HERE, "If proven, this looks to be a REAL case of copyright infringement as opposed to someone sharing a song non-commercially via p2p." So should we call her a pirate too?
