In his complaint to the ARN, the Swedish man confronted the accuracy of lyrics from Houston's seventh and final album "I Look to You," particularly the eponymous song, the local Swedish newspaper Dala-Demokraten reported.
The man claims this to have been deliberately done by the producer, songwriter and Whitney Houston herself.
Accordingly, the claimant demands that the product should be marketed "more correctly" in order to avoid misunderstanding. He also claims to be receiving "weird friend requests" on social media as a result of the lyrics mentioning his name, Lars Johan.
However, the ARN was unimpressed with the claim and, perhaps unsurprisingly, declined to probe the matter.
"The case will not be investigated. The reason for the decision is that only cases where the consumer's requirement has a financial value are investigated. The present matter can therefore not be investigated," the ARN's decision explained.
"I Look to You" was released by Arista Records in 2009, and became Whitney Houston's most successful album since "The Bodyguard" in 1992. After its release, "I Look to You" quickly went on to sell over 3 million copies worldwide, earning a platinum certification in seven countries and a gold certification in eight. Houston herself claimed the title song to sum up the album, being "all she wanted to say at that stage of her life."
In 2014, plagiarism issues were raised in Sweden, as fans of Swedish singer Ji Nilsson pointed out striking similarities between No Doubt frontwoman Gwen Stefani's solo track "Baby Don't Lie" and the Nordic diva's "Heartbreakfree" from the same year.
