Court Case

In 1985 Greek composer Stavros Logaridis sued Vangelis for plagiarism (EMI vs Warner Brothers), alleging the title track had plagiarised Logaridis' song "City of Violets" (1977) — which does feature similar instrumentation and chord progressions. Vangelis demonstrated his first-take improvisational composition style live on his synthesizers in court and was acquitted of the complaint.

The case reached the London High Courts in 1987, and was referred to as a test case numerous times in the following years in matters relating but not limited to; Music sampling, Copyright infringement etc.

Famous quotes containing the words case and/or court:

    I often used to think myself in the case of the fox-hunter, who, when he had toiled and sweated all day in the chase as if some unheard-of blessing was to crown his success, finds at last all he has got by his labor is a stinking nauseous animal. But my condition was yet worse than his; for he leaves the loathsome wretch to be torn by his hounds, whilst I was obliged to fondle mine, and meanly pretend him to be the object of my love.
    Sarah Fielding (1710–1768)

    A friend i’the court is better than a penny in purse.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
