When was Steve Vai’s filed did you look it up under the US copyright site? I believe the CD says (c) 1990 SyVy music, but I could be wrong a year or two. However, a work doesn't need to be registered in order to be protected by copyright law. Copyright is default from the moment you create it. It j...

The original post only suggested that they sound alike, no accustaion of plagiarism was made yet immediately Yozhik was attacked for his/her blasphemy. 8) I don't really agree with you here, as he did bring it up although not with all guns blazing :) Does anyone know about the writing credits FTLOG...

Vanilla Ice case is irrelevant to this, because that was a sample. There is a diffrence between using something that someone else made (a piece of a track /sample) vs something that you made yourself although based/quoting/inspired by someone elses track. There's not even a verbatim quote of notes ...

i do a law class in college, you can sue someone who has a product that looks exactly like your product as long as you designed that product (have patent and all that stuff) but if the product is change a certain amount, then you cant sue, or at least wont win case (depending on which court you tak...

According to some psychological research , everything we've ever seen , heard or experienced is in our memory . The problem we have as humans is that we can't recall all those memories , but they are in there somewhere . So it is very possible that Steve heard the Kung Fu tune as a kid , and 15 yea...

Let's hurry up and close this thread... It's a waste of Bandwidth. Cheers, “Hurry up and close the thread” won’t make the obvious go away and stating it’s a waste of bandwidth is just leading a decent discussion into your personal unproven opinion. This thread is relevant about Steve Vai, and other...

i can't believe you are even talking about all this, it's purely ridiculous, i mean, i'd like to know what your point is actually debating about it...... in my personal opinion steve would never steal somebody else's melody and that sound sample there was only so close, i had to listen hard to hear...

zzzec,

Perhaps there are others out there but Steve's FTLOG and kung fu are the only ones I have heard.

I've just listened to the MIDI file, and I must say that there are only a few similarities between the two tunes. The first two chords are more or less the same, but after that the chord structure is fairly different from FTLOG. The theme has only very few similarities with Steve's tune, but the ba...

Bryceybhoy,

I am not sure about the term pish and what it entails but run over the details and dispute it then if so.

Everyone "steals" from their influences wether consciously or subconsciously, weve all come up with melodies or riffs only to have a friend say hey thats cool you can play xyz by theultrafamousrockband. The real art of music is to make something sound vaguely familiar yet be original, totally origi...

Jeroen, With all due respect the both of us without proper counsel can determine what is protected by Copyright law, and not as well as time constraints concerning copyright protected music. And it doesn’t have anything at all to do with the number of notes. Lucasfilm the owner of that famous THX l...

id say purely coincidental, its just another Villanova junction thread Zeds.Ded, We wouldn’t know for certain unless Steve made a public statement about the similarity. Everyone refers me to the Hendrix Villanova junction thread but it’s a different melody altogether. Some of the more blatant nicks...
