This is the question a court in the Southern District of New York will be dealing with in a recent lawsuit filed against Destiny Hope, a/k/a Miley Cyrus and others. Does Miley's chart topping 2013 hit song" We Can't Stop" infringe on a song written by Michael May?

Jamaican songwriter and deejay Michael May goes by the stage name 'Flourgon". This name was given to him because of his love of dumplings.
