In the case of Taurus and Game on, it looks like there is a case to be made. In both cases there is a marked similarity and alleged access beforehand. We 'll see.
I dont even like either song. Id rather steal something I like.
All I know is there are trends in music. One guy uses a certain drum sound, everybody starts using it. I recall Phill Collins circa 1985, everybody was using the sounds he came up with. Not copyrightable, but the idea is the same, you stole this guys ideas, OR, you rode his coattails to success.
If you notice a hit song comes out, and suddenly there are 5 songs in a row that all sound the same. It's riding the trends. You see it on TV too, somebody has a hit with one singing show, then there are 5 singing shows.
You hear a certain style of vocal on the radio, and suddenly ten people sound just like that same singer. It's all modeling and basicly stealing ideas.
I believe if anything that's all that is in play here. It's not even a great song, inhmo, I think its more trying to be current, than stealing the song.
