I WAS ONLY TRYING TO HELP


Contact Music reports that William Smith, the producer who released a number of singles recorded by American Idol winner Taylor Hicks to iTunes, has revealed his defence: altruism. Smith is arguing that he only released the singles to show how good a singer Hicks is after the song he released for American Idol was heavily criticised.

Hicks: idol with the silver head

Said Smith:
‘I'm being sued because I am a better producer than American Idol…He was getting killed by that goofy single, and I knew he was better than that…I love Taylor Hicks. I had a three-year relationship with him. That single sucks, and this was purely altruistic on my part. I wanted to show critics that were killing him that he was way more than American Idol.’
It’s an interesting defence says the IPKat, but not one that’s recognised by copyright law.
