‘Cats’ actress Taylor Swift, 32, has asked a music court to dismiss the lawsuit filed over her song ‘Shake It Off.’

Swift was asked a few weeks ago to stand trial over copyright infringement regarding the song, and its comparison to the song by 3LW called ‘Plays Gon’ Play’ from 2000.

Swift filed the motion on December 23, and asked Judge Michael Fitzgerald to consider dismissing the suit…Swift states: “Both works use versions of two short public domain phrases — ‘players gonna play’ and ‘haters gonna hate’— that are free for everyone to use. The presence of versions of the two short public domain statements and two other tautologies in both songs simply does not satisfy the extrinsic test. Otherwise, plaintiffs could sue everyone who writes, sings, or publicly says ‘players gonna play’ and ‘haters gonna hate’ alone with other tautologies. To permit that is unprecedented and cheats the public domain.” 3LW’s songwriter’s lawyer responded with: “We feel there is no basis for reconsideration, and that this is just a music mogul and her machine trying to deny our client justice by outspending a fellow lower-income artist. Totally uncool among artists.”
