Carly Rae Jepsen & Owl City

$500K Victory

In 'Good Time' Legal War

EXCLUSIVE

0609_carly_rae_jepsen_owl-city-tmz-gettyCarly Rae Jepsen and Owl City's hit song "Good Time" is NOT a ripoff of another song by Allyson Burnett -- but it IS about to earn Owl City more than $500,000 ... TMZ has learned.

Allyson had filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Carly Rae and Owl City back in 2012 ... claiming their track ripped off her "Ah, It's a Love Song."

Today, attorneys for Owl City -- real name Adam Young -- filed a proposal in Federal Court that would award him $525,901.77 in disputed ASCAP royalties for the song.

The deal still has to be approved by the court, but we're told that's a formality.

The suit against Carly Rae was also dropped last week.

Allyson's attorney tells us she decided to withdraw her lawsuit after an "extensive investigation" confirmed "Good Time" was an original tune.

No duh ... said almost everyone who voted in a TMZ poll.

We are known as the sue happy country....if I knew someone got rich from suing someone that would be someone I clearly wouldn't want to date.

Really? A song that was a hit for about 30 seconds can earn that much in royalties?

She looks like Jim Morrison's girlfriend. I would totally get stoned with her. Or get totally stoned, either way.

Hooray. Any song with the line "What's up with this Prince song inside my head", is a winner in my book. This song is a little too sugar-popish for my taste, but I'm glad they won the lawsuit. Now, back to one of my favorite Prince songs, SST. Or maybe some Va Va Voom.

Carly Rae is a cute little bunny. Case dismissed! Leave her alone! I'd love to be munching her tight little clam!

62% is "almost everyone" according to TMZ math? I don't think so….
