“JUSTIN BIEBER SUED FOR COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT OVER HIT SONG ‘SORRY’”
What does it mean when talking about the Intellectual property: well according to google it refers to intangible property that is the result of creativity, such as patents, copyrights, etc. I recently read an article about how we’ve gotten used to dismissing our appropriating ways by saying that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. So basically, what people are saying is that, hey you put all this hard work in, I want to do basically the something as you, but you do all the work, and I’ll take the credit okay thanks, bye. This reminds me of when I was doing my Creative Arts Degree, it was in the last semester and I had a classmate who as it turned out got a lot of credit for these what I believed to be beautiful works turns out these art pieces didn’t come from her. Merely I product of someone else’s hard work.
Borrowing phrases, taking credit is not always the best idea, I meant it’s not like you post a tweet or Facebook status about your feels by post a Virginia Woolf quote. For example, Justin Bieber’s “Sorry”, many suggested was a public apology of sorts for this poor actions in recent times. So yes it was pretty ironic that he was hit with a copyright infringement lawsuit over this song, along with Skrillex who produced the track. The singer-songwriter White Hinterland accused the singer by stating that the memorable opening from “Sorry” was stolen from her 2014 song “Ring the Bell.” “The identical and/or striking similarity of ‘Sorry’ to Plaintiff’s song ‘Ring the Bell’ surpasses the realm of generic coincidence and independent creation.”.The GIF, Biebers confused face and the words “What’s Intellectual Property” written across makes for an interesting Question mark on the topic of Intellectual Property, especially in today’s society.
