Louis Tomlinson's name added to the composer list for EXO's 'Love Shot'

USER CONTENT

SM Entertainment didn't officially admit it but netizens are convinced EXO's "Love Shot" did plagiarize Louis Tomlinson's "Back To You" after all.   

Recently, 5 producers behind "Back To You," as well as Louis Tomlinson himself have been added to the composer/author list of "Love Shot" on GEMA, a German copyright association. 

Based on the addition, it's assumed SM Entertainment had to give credit to the producers and singer of "Back To You" as the plagiarism accusations turned out to be valid. 

The plagiarism accusation sparked in December after a netizen pointed out the similarities between the two songs. You can check out "Back To You" and "Love Shot" below.

This happens because SM artists are never exclusively just musicians that's why too many people are involved in their music.

He might have been added to avoid being sued. As in, easier and cheaper to add than to fight it, without SM admitting or denying any guilt. Also, the list may not reflect the share of the royalties, meaning some on this list could have higher % and others lower % of the proceeds.
