I love a good copyright infringement scrap as everyone probably knows,so I was particularly delighted to hear that an enormous hoo-ha in the glorious world of Pop music has erupted yesterday where I read that alternative rockers Radiohead are suing the ethereal popstrell songstress Lana Del Ray over the similarities between her track 'Get Free' and their song 'Creep'.

What I find interesting here is the fact that Radiohead were sued by The Hollies who claimed that parts of 'Creep' are based on the melodies from 'The Air That I Breathe'.

Radiohead apparently want the full 100% of the publishing rights while LDR is offering 40% to settle the dispute before it goes to court while claiming that the song is an original composition and not influenced by the Radiohead tune at all.

What do you think ?

I find it hard to believe that nobody at her record label called that out before the album came out. Well, they probably did, but assumed they'd get away with it. It's more blatant than the original rip-off of the song by The Hollies IMO.

40% of the publishing should be enough though. They're being greedy bastards by asking for 100.

Yeah, those were my exact same thoughts upon the first listen last night.

Wow, that's pretty blatant. Radiohead should be breaking out the champagne - 40% of the pub for doing nothing and over a song they ripped off in the first place?

Holy shit. Not even Bitches With Whips prepared me for that.

I think in the case of The Hollies versus Radiohead it wasn't the whole track they claimed RH infringed as such but more the vocal refrain and musical melody where the song shifts and Thom Yorke sings the 'She's running out again' lyric in Creep which The Hollies claimed was based on The Air That I Breathe.  

 

Totally agree with the 40 % of the publishing for doing nothing comment though.

Yes,yes I totally agree but that's not the point..

 

This thread is a serious discussion about copyright infringement ,theres no need for any pointless name calling here, especially against a group like The Hollies who are a bunch of talentless, useless MOR tossers who's music stinks like 3 week old dinosaur urine... :d

Oh don't get me wrong Dan, I lose many a night's sleep hoping the rich pop stars will all be able to come to an agreement one day that makes them all equally rich and special. Who doesn't?!

But...

I am on a one man crusade against the tide of an alarming trend I've been monitoring for some time time now - the fucked up notion that all bands and music is of value once they've been around in the world for long enough. Fuck. No. Not on my watch sonny!

I'm pretty well educated on copyright infringement and I think most claims are bullshit but LOL she copied the hell out of Radiohead on this one.

Ciroc is still defending Junebugg because of these non-delivered 06-faceplates from 2001. It's a tough case

haha that would be even better :) "hey! they stole that song off someone else! i should get paid!"

 

it clearly is a copy.... but does it really matter? are people buying the new one INSTEAD of the radiohead one? or the hollies? thats whats so fucked about copyright laws to me - who buys biz markie records AND gilbert o'sullivan records? not many people, im guessing. so who cares that biz sings some of gilberts lines out of tune for part of his song? its not like gilbert o'sullivan was on the cusp of selling loads of records to 80's hip hop fans.... and i can't imagine that many people buying lana del ray records are now shunning radiohead's 90's back catalogue as a result.

 

my opinion is probably biased though :)

We all did Joe!

It's like when B dropped Crazy In Love, I went straight to my 45s, pulled out that Chi-Lites single and snapped it in half there and then. Sometimes an event so monumental occurs in music, that you just instinctively know there's no going back.

I admire and approve of your stance on this matter !..

 

 

That Chi-lites number is still a dope tune tho.. :|
