Post Malone Settles Copyright Dispute

We reported yesterday on The Weeknd coming to settlement terms for alleged copyright infringement over his song “Call Out My Name”, in a similar fashion, Post Malone has also chosen to avoid a trial and has settled his own copyright suit over his hit song “Circles”. Tyler Armes sued Post Malone, whose real name is Austin Richard Post and Canadian musician Frank Dukes back in 2020 on the basis both Armes and Post Malone had co-written the hit song Circles, but Post Malone had failed to give Armes credit upon release of the song. Terms of the settlement have not been released, but it is reported the agreement was only reached in the eleventh hour, namely minutes before the trial was due to commence. The jury was being selected as the terms were being agreed between the parties.
