US Judge dismisses Taylor Swift 'haters' case as too 'banal

The phrase "haters gonna hate" is too "banal" to be copyrighted, a US judge has declared.
Judge Michael W Fitzgerald made the comments while dismissing a copyright case against Taylor Swift.
Songwriters Sean Hall and Nathan Butler sued the star last year, arguing her single Shake It Off stole from their composition, Playas Gon' Play.
They said the chorus of her song relied on their lyric, "playas, they gonna play, and haters, they gonna hate".
Although short phrases are generally immune from copyright claims, the writers argued that combining the two thoughts was original enough to warrant protection.
Fitzgerald disagreed - in quite some style.
