Isn't Dylan's 4th Time Around just Norwegian Wood anyway?


Spooky fact, reverse the bassline on Taxman and it's I Am The Resurrection.
Dylan robbed loads of lyrics from a Japanese novel on his Lover & Theft album. I remember reading that, never investigated it.

wiki article on derivative works said:
A “derivative work” is a work based upon one or more preexisting works, such as a translation, musical arrangement, dramatization, fictionalization, motion picture version, sound recording, art reproduction, abridgment, condensation, or any other form in which a work may be recast, transformed, or adapted. A work consisting of editorial revisions, annotations, elaborations, or other modifications which, as a whole, represent an original work of authorship, is a “derivative work”.
..continued.. said:
The copyright in a compilation or derivative work extends only to the material contributed by the author of such work, as distinguished from the preexisting material employed in the work, and does not imply any exclusive right in the preexisting material. The copyright in such work is independent of, and does not affect or enlarge the scope, duration, ownership, or subsistence of, any copyright protection in the preexisting material.
..continued.. said:
When does derivative-work liability exist?
Copyright infringement liability for a later work arises only if the later work embodies a substantial amount of protected expression taken from the earlier, underlying work. The later work must take enough protected expression (it does not matter how much unprotected material is taken, for the latter is open to the public) for the later work to be "substantially similar" to the earlier work.

yeah but no but yeah but...

that's a blues that was around before link ever played it.
yeah, the same can probably be said for every Chuck Berry song ripped off. And Bo Diddly said his beat was him trying to play someone else's beat.


anyway, that adam and the ants AFAIK is purposely Rumble with singing over it.

The important thing is that this thread is great

Doesnt really bother me too much if a two songs have simalr riffs - loads of trad and folk music shared melodies. Thing that really gets me is when someone tries to copy a a bands whole sound/style . Like kyle having that one song that was a direct rip off of Goldfrap.
