The verdict in New York came after a two-week trial that featured a courtroom performance by Sheeran.
The "Thinking Out Loud" singer is being sued for the song's likeness to "Let's Get It On" by Marvin Gaye.
The lawsuit over Sheeran's song was filed in 2017. The trial is expected to last up to two weeks.
The new recording, '18,' will feature covers of the Velvet Underground, the Beach Boys and Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On."
The singer is being sued for $100 million because his hit "Thinking Out Loud" allegedly copies Gaye's song "Let's Get It On."
Gaye鈥檚 family was also awarded interest on an earlier award that wasn鈥檛 immediately paid as well as 50 percent royalties on 鈥淏lurred Lines鈥 from now on.
The lawsuit claims Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud" shares the 鈥渟ame melody, rhythms, harmonies, drums鈥 as Gaye鈥檚 classic hit.
