Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson scored a big hit with their track "Uptown Funk," and they are now reportedly facing a lawsuit from the early 1980s funk band Collage claiming it was "copied" from one of their songs.

"Uptown Funk" hasn't been without controversy over songwriting credit for the song, with the authors of the Gap Band's 1979 hit "Oops Upside Your Head" being added to the track's credits last year after the classic band's camp made a claim via YouTube's rights management system.

Now a lawsuit has reportedly been filed on behalf of the electro-band Collage, according to TMZ. Another report (via ABC) says that the complaint claims that the Mars and Ronson hit "deliberately and clearly copied" from Collage's 1983 song "Young Girls".
