As announced on August 7, 2015 in the Hollywood Reporter, Dr. Luke is being sued by New Old Music Group for allegedly copying the opening breakbeat for Jessie J's Price Tag (released January 25, 2011), which Luke co-wrote and produced, from Black Heat's funk song Zimba Ku (released 1972). Have a listen.

Per Wikipedia:
[Buffalo Soldier's] bridge, with the lyrics woy! yoy! yoy!, is similar to the chorus of the Banana Splits' "The Tra-La-La Song", the 1968 theme from their TV show, written by Mark Barkan and Ritchie Adams. Buffalo Soldier was from Marley's final recording session in 1980, and released posthumously in 1983. [ed. furtherlane]

The opening guitar riff to Am I Wrong by Norwegian duo Nico & Vinz (released April 2013) is reminiscent of the opening guitar riff to the Police's Message in a Bottle (released September 1979), not to mention the vocals sound like Sting. Similarities include: key (only a half-step apart, AIW: Cmin/Eb; MiaB: C#min/E), chord progression (AIW: Cmin-Ab-Fmin-Bb, vi-IV-ii-V or min6-4-min2-5 pattern; MiaB: C#min-A-B-F#min, vi-IV-V-ii or min6-4-5-min2), and arpeggiated eighth-note rhythm. Am I Wrong also bears some resemblance to The Outfield's Say It Isn't So (vocals and guitar mostly), and the verse melody at (:55) is similar to the verse melody for Phil Collins' Something Happened On The Way To Heaven (AIW: "If one thing I know, I'll fall but I'll grow" and SHOTWTH: "We had a love, we had a life"). And finally, part of the chorus melody to AIW (1:01) is similar to the chorus to Boyz II Men's End Of The Road (:58)--AIW: "Am I wrong, for thinking that we could be something for real" VS EOTR: "Although we've come to the end of the road").
