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.

Kia Motors to offer 16 electrified vehicles globally by 2025
Woong-chul Yang said: "Kia's connected cars will be both boundless and connected and offer a new kind of mobility experience". Interestingly, Kia says the concept "draws inspiration from" the existing Niro, though it looks pretty close indeed to us.

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'".

Kendall Jenner praised for talking about her acne at Golden Globes
Close-up pictures of Kendall's face were shared online with people mocking her skin but she was having none of it. A third added: "As a performer that's struggled with acne my whole life, I applaud you for typing this".

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.
