The Katy Perry lawsuit is ridiculous. There's a sample that's slightly similar to that of some Christian rapper but for whatever reason an expert claimed it was therefore stolen. That rapper's lucky the decision was made by a jury which once again shows regular people have no idea how music works and therefore most have no idea what's copied and what's not.

I also think once Bon Jovi would start sueing bands it'd open a can of worms for them as a lot of what they've done is either very similar or just "inspired" by other bands.

Salaam Aleikum,
