These things really need to end before the inevitable slippery slope. The Heartbreakers are my second or third favorite group and Sam Smith makes my ears bleed. But I thought that whole thing was just as ridiculous. The problem with artistic ownership with music is that, unlike any other art-form, the potential artistic combinations--for all practical purposes--are finite. This is especially true with popular music. So, unless one can literally take the sheet music of one song and overlay it for an exact match with the other (allowing for a few slight variations) these things should be immediately dismissed. Because here's the problem I see: With each one of these the precedent gap gets wedged open a little farther. Eventually some eager beaver is going to sue one GDEC song over another--or maybe several.
