An original tune by Tempest – 4 channel Amiga mod called "Acid Jazz Evening" – which you can download at the Amiga Music Preservation site, which was remixed by GRG (which you can download here) was blatantly copied by Nelly Furtado and Timbaland recently. The video on Youtube does a pretty good job of comparing the two tracks.

I find it funny on one hand that these music producers are going to the C64 to look for ideas, but reprehensible at the same time that they or their associate organizations (like the RIAA) accuse their customers of stealing music. Stealing music content like the Youtube clip portrays is far more damaging to the original author.

I wish Tempest luck on this one, but if the court cases against Disney are any indicator you’ll want to give up while you can.

(and if you don’t know what I’m talking about in regards to Disney check this out – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lion_King#Controversies)
