    And that’s the problem with juries of lay people trying to decide copyright issues. Total BS. I don’t hear it. Do you?

    I don’t hear it either. The snap sound in the percussion and the tempo are similar but that’s pretty much it. In my view this verdict is crazy.

    Hopefully she’ll appeal it. This is a ridiculous precedent to set. The very resonant 808 sounds the same and the melody has a similar sort of arc, but so do the millions of other trap instrumentals in existence.

    At least we’ll all have a stable source of income going forward if we can just randomly sue artists to make ends meet.

    Nope. Apart from a slightly similar rhythmic synth pattern (very common to trap music) and a percussion (snap),i’m hearing 2 different tracks.

    I don’t hear it at all not even close…..but what I do hear sounds like a rip off of a sample from Spirit In The Sky by Norman Greenbaum in the Joyful Noise track at the beginning ………lol

    There simply has to be another motive behind this. To even say that Finger-snaps (A non melody/non musical Item) is similar, means that we would have to “Really Stretch” to find anything of similarity..

    They do sound pretty close, lined up next to each other.
    Also the ‘you know what it is’ vocal that they both have in the intro, is hardly a coincidence.
