Cut, Copy and Paste – An Established Norm in all walks of life

The academic fraternity often accuses students that project reports are copied from internet resources. Even creative communities engage in plagiarism and the Music Director/composer fraternity is one of the best examples. Sify has an article on the recent ‘inspirations’ in Hindi films. How does one differentiate between an inspiration and a song theft / copy? Itwofs.com has been doing a good job of exposing such copied songs. Even though I have mentioned about Itwofs before I thought of mentioning them again so that the blogging community supports such efforts.

    If a piece has been copied or rehashed, and the public like it, there is no issue. If they keep on copying (whoever does it), they cannot survive in this industry.. like our tamil music director S.A.Rajkumar. We need to appreciate S.A.R. since he recycles his own music always.

  • Doesn't the copy pasting community make it easy for us to recognize ppl with original talent?

  • @Ram,
    recycling ones own music also needs some skills... :-) copying others music should be easier

    @Cogito,
    all those factors have resulted in the deterioration of music standards

    @Chanakya,
    yeah...it is easier to spot original and genuine talent.
