The Grotesque Legacy of Music as Property

quote [ Copyright Bad. ]

A great dive into the history of copyright in music and how it's being abused in the modern day. Really good watch. Especially in light of all the crazy stuff AI is doing nowadays.

The Sheeran/Gaye example is a poor choice to spotlight for the very reason Neely points out earlier. It is not about rhythm, chord, melody. Sheeran invokes mood through a similar arrangement and hints of lyrical content. Not saying it's stolen, but the influence is just as strong as "Blurred Lines".
