Regardless of whether the court decided yay or nay, what do you make of some of the plagiarism controversies below claiming that your favorite artist may have stolen music from another artist?  Do you think it's simply sampling, a coincidence, or more?  Also do you think it's not the artist's fault, solely the composer or producer's, or do you believe the artist has a responsibility to uphold?

I can't tell if they plagiarize coldplay in this song, but is you compare: BTS Fire and Fergie L.A LOVE, you can see the similarities.  they even copied the "nananana"

Chen's Everytime reminded me of his track Best Luck right at the first time I heard it while watching DoTS hahaha

GD is a copycat. He always copies in his songs and losers and idiots call him a genius

Miko101 atravista Sunday, July 31, 2016

Um for your imformation Flo Rida stated that Heartbreaker was not a copy of Right Round so before u start hating do yourself a favor and factcheck ok?

Its simple, most of the artists you listed here DO NOT WRITE THEIR SONGS so, if there's any plagiarize problem it's because of the songwriter and not them...

we've been existing for such a long period of time on this planet...there's nothing in this world that doesn't sound, look or feel similar to something else...

This might be my bias speaking but even IF they were plagarised, the Korean songs are better anyway

SaVanityVan Saturday, July 30, 2016

Is this the second time they've published literally this exact article, or am I stroking out?

DaisyCat SaVanityVan Saturday, July 30, 2016

They did.. this was posted on FB an hour ago and this was published 8 days ago. And I even found this 8 days ago on FB.. If that's not looking for trouble I dunno what it is ><

Newsflash people, these artists did not plagiarise these songs because these artists did not write the songs. If you want to point fingers i suggest they're pointed those credited as composers and arrangers for the track. Also this is pop music we're talking about, not bebop jazz, there's only so much you can do to 12 notes before it starts to sound like the opposite of what you're going for, and remember, most of these songs you're comparing have been ran through the same presets on Pro Tools while in the studio, it's not like the record producer is going to turn that knob dialled "Mid" all the way to 0 like metal guitarists sometimes do (and can afford to do). If you're going to pick a fight, pick it with the correct people, and at least educate yourselves before you say anything.
