    Insanity! The thought of putting this in front of a jury is truly frightening.

    Fascinating. I read the court doc also. Then again maybe it will be a cure for a lot of the “me too” music out there! 😉

    Is the beat in Price Tag an actual sampling of Zimba Ku?

    I see some saying it is but I can’t quite tell.

    Oh and also what happened with that Gaye/Williams one? Did it get appealed? Is that even possible?

    Yeah, I was wondering if it was sampled but reading the docs seems as if it was copied.

    Of course if you have a mega hit it’s just the cost of doing business.

    I played on the John Lennon Rock N Roll album and that album was solely made to satisfy Chuck Berry copyright infringements.

    Pretty soon no one will be allowed to put a snare on two and four…

    Wow , this is crazy, suing musicians because of similar drum part!! What’s next? suing because you used the same guitar distortion…

    This is an outrage. I can’t tell you how many gigs I have been on where a drummer played this exact beat. I would consider it the same as a person using ‘the’ in a sentence.

    Rant finished, the beat IS pretty damn spot on outside of exact drum pitches and an extra kick in the Jessie J track.
