In August 2008, the Portuguese Society of Authors (SPA) announced that it had received several complaints about possible plagiarism by Tony Carreira. The complaints related to three songs: "Depois de Ti (Mais Nada)", "Ai Destino, Ai Destino" and "Leva-me ao Céu". SPA concluded that the song "Depois de Ti (Mais Nada)", is an apparent unauthorized copy of the song "Después de Ti Qué?", made popular by Christian Castro. No action was taken however because SPA had not received an official complaint from the rights owners, who are represented by Universal Music Publishing. According to Universal Music the matter was "under investigation" (as of 2008). ()
