It’s not like the track would cost a large amount to license even for broadcast(it should), why wouldn’t they just pay $17 and get the real deal. Weird.
+1 They went to the trouble and no doubt extra expense of hiring another producer to rip off something that would have cost them $17…. I don’t get it either. :confused:
Maybe that track is on another royalty free site and they just bought it there not knowing that it’s very simillar to Tims track?

My guess is that the client wanted a song with exclusive rights for branding. They contacted an artist, sent him “Beautiful Day” for reference and asked to do something similar.

I’ve read your opinion,guys…and I’m surprised! May be chords are similar but text and intonation are identical!! According to your logic I’m able to take, for example song Beatles “Yesterday”...and change “yesterday” to “tomorrow”. If it’s true and this song’ll be broadcast on central TV…it must be very sadly for author.

Would like to hear Tim’s opinion.I often find copying compositions but in this case I can’t keep silent. Tim’s significant for AJ if we-authors will not help each other and will not protect our rights that requirement of our music will be gone.

For example any NOT POOR company orders ad for central TV. Person who get this order, he resing your song. He get money but you nothing. And you eat their apples and create new song.=)))))

Ugh, this kind of incidents of Plagiarism are pretty disgusting. It’s so obvious in this one.. I hope sometime in the future there will be an easy way to deal with those blatant cases, instead of going with the entire legal ordeal.

I realise the law is difficult in this kind of thing but if that track is considered fair game then there is literally no point writing your own music ever again

I do find it quite ironic that some people get up in arms about instances like this, yet have absolutely no qualms in mimicking and selling near carbon copies of tracks by Coldplay and U2! :)

I think we can all agree though, if Bono loses out in some way that is a win for humanity

This discussion is ridiculous :) All write about music but nobody says about text and intonation. If it’s commercial cover, they must pay to Tim. If it’s remix they must pay to Tim. Do you read verses? ?hange in any verse one or even several words and try to sell it like own. If we don’t submit the claims that we will not have judicial precedent. And we will not earn. I don’t think that Tim stole as Nirvana :)
