SOPHIE B HAWKINS has won a piracy case against a man who was selling copies of her album on eBay.

BBC news reports that the singer won the small claims judgement against the man, who was “making easy money of something that’s my blood and guts”.

The star was awarded just under £200 from the seller.

Hawkins said: “He was making easy money off something that’s my blood and guts. I had invested all of my life savings into this record and he wouldn’t stop. I want to thank my fans because they really protected me when this started happening. They are the ones who got ripped off. One person had to pay $300 for a (‘Wilderness’) CD that didn’t even have the artwork.”
