MADONNA SAYS NOT TODAY


Hip Hop Galaxy reports that Dr Dre, Mary J Blige and Eve are being sued for copyright infringement by Madonna’s music publishers. The publishers claim that Not Today is similar in pitch and rhythm to Madonna’s track Holiday.


The IPKat notes that judging infringement in music cases is rather tricky. He also adds that writers can be subconsciously influenced by previous songs that they have heard, but the fact that they were not aware of their copying is no defence.

  1. After Paul McKenna's recent law suit, http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/articles/showbiz/showbiznews.html?in_article_id=398025&in_page_id=1773, isn't it just as well that the IPKat hasn't questioned where Dr Dre got his doctorate ...?

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
