Ed Sheeran Accused of Ripping Off Marvin Gaye

Published

on

Progressive-generation singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran stands accused of ripping off the work of Marvin Gaye by directly copying Gaye’s classic “Let’s Get It On.” Sheeran is now being sued $100 million by a one-third owner of Marvin Gaye’s recording estate.

Sheeran is trying to defend himself from this and another lawsuit by saying that the melody and chords of Gaye’s song is “extremely commonplace” and the rest of the song elements are “unprotectable.”

Business Insider reports: “According to the lawsuit, Sheeran’s song has the same melody, rhythms, harmonies, drums, bassline, backing chorus, tempo, syncopation and looping as ‘Let’s Get it On,'” TMZ reported. Sheeran was also sued over “Thinking Out Loud” in 2016. The family of Ed Townsend, a cowriter on Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On,” sued Sheeran, arguing that “Thinking Out Loud” lifted the melody, harmony, and other rhythmic components from Gaye’s track. Sheeran responded to the 2016 suit in documents obtained by TMZ last week. He reportedly claimed that the chord progressions and drum patterns of both songs are “extremely commonplace,” and that similar elements in “Let’s Get It On” are in the public domain and unprotectable.”

Robin Thicke’s hit song “Blurred Lines” from a few years ago was also accused of being ripped off from Marvin Gaye (Thicke and Farrell paid $7.4 million to the children of Marvin Gaye in a lawsuit after a jury found it to be a ripoff of “Got To Give It Up.”)

Left-wing Snowflakes Working for Publisher Attempt Censorship Revolt Over New Jordan Peterson Book

They really hate freedom of expression.

Shortly after news broke that individualist author Jordan Peterson would be releasing a new book, far-left staffers at the book’s publisher, Penguin Random House Canada, are attempting a revolt to get the book censored.

VICE has reported on certain staff members throwing tantrums during a recent townhall over Penguin Random House’s intended publication of Peterson’s new book, Beyond Order: 12 More Rules for Life. The book is scheduled to be released in March 2021.

“He is an icon of hate speech and transphobia and the fact that he’s an icon of white supremacy, regardless of the content of his book, I’m not proud to work for a company that publishes him,” a LGBT pervert who wants Peterson’s book to be censored said to VICE World News.

Another weakling employee said that “people were crying in the meeting about how Jordan Peterson has affected their lives.”

“The company since June has been doing all these anti-racist and allyship things and them publishing Peterson’s book completely goes against this. It just makes all of their previous efforts seem completely performative,” the employee said.

The publisher is apparently not folding to the snowflakes and will continue with their plans to publish the book despite their whininess.

“We announced yesterday that we will publish Jordan Peterson’s new book Beyond Order this coming March. Immediately following the announcement, we held a forum and provided a space for our employees to express their views and offer feedback. Our employees have started an anonymous feedback channel, which we fully support. We are open to hearing our employees’ feedback and answering all of their questions. We remain committed to publishing a range of voices and viewpoints,” the statement said.

Big League Politics has reported on how companies are beginning to ignore their left-wing employees and instead make decisions based on market demands:

A contingent of leftist snowflakes working at Spotify are demanding that certain podcast episodes of the Joe Rogan Experience be censored to their ideological demands, or they will strike.

Last week, it was reported that Spotify was undergoing a revolt of sorts because several controversial episodes of the podcast were being published on the platform. An episode featuring Abigail Shrier, author of Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters, is particularly offensive to the left-wing snowflakes who hate freedom of speech and love mentally-ill individuals getting their genitals mutilated.

Rogan is already being forced to grovel for making accurate statements on his podcast, such as when he correctly claimed that left-wing terrorists are starting wildfires in places like Portland.

“I said something on the podcast with Douglas Murray about people getting arrested for lighting fires, and I got duped. It’s wrong,” Rogan said in an Instagram post.

Smelling blood in the water, the Spotify leftists are going for the jugular. They are threatening to strike if they cannot exert further ideological control over Rogan’s podcast. According to Digital Music News, New York-based Spotify employees are intending to strike with accompanying pro-censorship protests outside of Spotify’s Manhattan headquarters.

However, they report that Spotify brass is likely willing to stare down these entitled employees, considering the $100 million investment they put into Rogan’s podcast.

“It also appears that Spotify management — including CEO Daniel Ek — has a limited tolerance for the mutiny on deck… The reason for Ek’s pushback is somewhat obvious. Joe Rogan’s entire identity revolves around unfiltered discussion and opinion, and audiences could abandon the podcast if it becomes censored or controlled,” Digital Music News reported.

Companies are beginning to realize that “get woke, go broke” is a truism and adjusting accordingly by ignoring liberal tantrums.
