The entire theme of We Can't Stop would be hollow in sound and impact, and would fail to achieve... success without the unique thrust of authenticity and the substantially similar theme of/provided by Plaintiff May's original, protected content."

TheWrap has reached out to Cyrus's label RCA, also named as a defendant in the suit, for comment.

The suit seeks a judicial determination that May's copyright has been infringed, as well as unspecified damages.
