Country sensation Taylor Swift is suing the owners of a bar in Idaho for allegedly playing her songs without permission.
The Love Story hitmaker has teamed up with Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI), the organisation which collects license fees on behalf of songwriters and distributes them as royalties, to file a copyright infringement lawsuit against The Sports Cellar venue.
The legal action comes after BMI representatives allegedly discovered that Swift's hits were being used to entertain revellers even though the bar's owners had failed to obtain a proper music licence.
According to, Swift and BMI bosses are seeking unspecified damages.
