    G, A, B. So, he's claiming to have a copyright to Do-Re-Mi?

    WTF.

    That’s it, I’m playing it safe from now on. I’m never going to use G, A or B again....

    Dude's lawyer won't get a nickel unless he wins and in that unlikely case he'll take minimum 40%.

    It's literally just stepwise motion. Screw these BS musicologists, lying and throwing the art under the bus. They should all have their degrees revoked and be blacklisted from the education community.

    If there was a downvote button, I'd press it so hard for this horrible, ignorant comment.
    Serious question— do you WANT music to die altogether? Because frivolous lawsuits like this create dangerous precedents that stifle musical freedom, and will ultimately lead to the death of art as a whole, should they continue to be put forth.

    And the same industry that has been ripping of their artists for many decades.

    Actually, those twelve notes, and their combinations and extensions (outside/beyond the octave counts!) gives a staggering number of combinations. Just look at what the eight bits in an IP address can render. As to rhythmic combinations, those are even worse. The melodic rhythms book used at Berklee (and elsewhere) shows how vast that number is. Put those two elements together and it gets thick fast.

    This is not an endorsement or condemnation of either party in this case.

    I was going to reply and say something like “Lady Gaga is the sound of music dying”.
    or...
    “Lady Gaga just called, she wanted to say that you are all her gallant heroes, and that she cares about you all so so very much”.

    But instead, i’m just going to agree that if ever a forum needed a downvote button, it’s this one.

    I thought copyright law had a specific fair use clause for parody though so that would be a little different. (full disclosure: I am not a lawyer).
