Los Angeles - A copyright infringement lawsuit over Ed Sheeran's hit Photograph has been settled.

A federal judge in Los Angeles dismissed the case on Monday based on a request by attorneys for Sheeran and the composers of a song called Amazing.

The composers, Martin Harrington and Tom Leonard, claimed Photograph was nearly identical in pitch, tempo and structure to their song.

The terms of the settlement were not included in court filings. Harrington and Leonard's attorney Richard S Busch said he could only confirm the case was settled.

Photograph topped pop charts throughout the world and sold more than 3.5 million copies.

Amazing was recorded and released as a single by Matt Cardle, winner of the 2010 season of TV's The X Factor.
