Lakewood Church says it will fight a $3 million lawsuit over the use of a copyrighted song.

Richard Cupolo, John Emanuele and Yesh Music filed a copyright infringement suit against Lakewood Church, and Joel and Victoria Osteen.

The suit claims the church used one of their songs without permission in national ads promoting a DVD. The church claims the music in question is one minute of background music which Lakewood Church had a license to use.
