Warner/Chappell responds to Radiohead and Lana Del Rey lawsuit reports

Warner/Chappell responds to Radiohead and Lana Del Rey lawsuit reports

That is certainly the case for Get Free, Lana Del Rey's new song, which has been the subject of a copyright lawsuit between her and Radiohead. Del Rey said she tried compromising, and even offered them 40 percent of royalties, but they want all the money she's made from the song.

Radiohead have disputed claims they've filed a lawsuit against Lana Del Rey for, just days after the United States singer seemingly confirmed the news. "Their lawyers have been relentless", she revealed, "so we will deal with it in court".

"As Radiohead's music publisher, it's true that we've been in discussions since August of past year with Lana Del Rey's representatives", the statement read.

Publishers of "The Air That I Breathe", a Top 10 hit for the Hollies in 1974, accused Radiohead of stealing that song, including its chord progression.

Some of Portman's fellow actresses also chimed in with Mindy Kaling tweeting: 'Yas Natalie Get Em Girl'. While Natalie's comment had the internet buzzing, there were others who did not see it coming.

Del Rey is yet to publicly respond.

As it stands, co-writers Kieron Menzies and Rick Nowels are credited on the track along with Del Rey.

Radiohead says LDR's "Get Free" sounds far too similar to their 1993 breakout single "Creep". "Because they were honest they weren't sued to the point of saying "we want the whole thing'".

Arsenal and Liverpool target could leave Monaco - boss
If Arsenal or Liverpool want to land the highly talented forward this month then they may have to splash out £90 million or more . According to the Daily Mail , Premier League sides Arsenal and Liverpool are both reportedly interested in the French worldwide .

Most famously, Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams were successfully, after a jury ruled that Blurred Lines plagiarised Gaye's track Got to Give It Up. Same for Sam Smith and his "Stay With Me", with Tom Petty's "Won't Back Down". It's arguable that no idea can be completely original, especially in the world of music.

Hmm. The chord progression is nearly the same but it that's the basis for lawsuits, then every artist would be suing every other artist. All musicians are influenced in someway by other.

Radiohead themselves, however, have remained silent over the brewing controversy.

Arsene Wenger: Arsenal can't compete with Man City on Jonny Evans
Northern Ireland centre-back Jonny Evans is a wanted man and any potential move away from West Brom may have moved a step closer. West Brom would benefit from bringing in an experienced defender and Debuchy certainly fits the bill in that regard.
