BTW- the Thicke case went to appeal and the verdict was upheld 2-1 with the dissenting judge basically saying she was dumbfounded by the verdict, noting how the 2 songs sounded nothing like each other.
I don't think the Thicke case is going to 'set precedent,' as there are cases that should have won (by precedent), but lost. Judges have discretion and they use it.
Listen, the OLDEST trick in the book is to take a hit, rewrite it and make it "YOUR" hit. There are limits to that approach, and if you don't think there are limits, then you likely don't belong in the creative arts. Perhaps marketing is more suitable.
