"Amarte Es Un Placer" (Loving You Is a Pleasure) is a song by Mexican singer Luis Miguel. It was released as the fourth single from his album of the same title. The song reached number six at the Billboard Latin Songs chart and was nominated for Pop Song of the Year at the Lo Nuestro Awards of 2001.
Controversy with the song
On May 3, 2007, a Mexican Judge found that Juan Carlos Calderón, Luis Miguel and the record label Warner Bros. Records were guilty of plagiarism against Mexican composer Marcos Lifshitz. After six years of trial, the court ruled that "Amarte es un Placer" was in fact an unauthorized modification of the song "Siento Nuestro Aliento" ("I Feel Our Breath") written by Lifshitz. The artist, Juan Carlos Calderón and the label have to pay royalties to the original writer.
