先週の話題ですが、以下のコメントが気になったので、英語オリジナルを調べてみました。

「ブラード・ラインズ」盗作評決、音楽業界は戦々恐々
2015年03月21日 16:53 発信地:ニューヨーク/米国

「音楽の素人の大半には、彼らが日本人じゃなければ、すべての音楽が日本語に聞こえるということを思い知らされる評決だ。僕やファレルのような仕事をする人間にとって窮地だ」

'Blurred Lines' verdict strikes fear into songwriters
By AFP
PUBLISHED: 23:40 GMT, 11 March 2015 | UPDATED: 23:41 GMT, 11 March 2015

"It reaffirms to me that for most ordinary people, music sounds like Japanese to them if they're not Japanese. This just takes the fear knob and cranks it to 11 for people who do what I and Pharrell do for a living," he told AFP.

自分は音楽には疎いので同じかどうかあまりピンときません。。。





今週はフィナンシャルタイムズでPharrell Williamsが裁判以来、初めてコメントしたとニュースになっていました。

Pharrell Williams warns of copycat litigation wave
Matthew Garrahan, New York

“The verdict handicaps any creator out there who is making something that might be inspired by something else,” Mr Williams told the Financial Times in his first interview since the ruling.

“This applies to fashion, music, design . . . anything. If we lose our freedom to be inspired we’re going to look up one day and the entertainment industry as we know it will be frozen in litigation. This is about protecting the intellectual rights of people who have ideas.”


今回は金額がものスゴイですし、あまりうるさく言うと今後の創作がやりにくくなりますよね。

Mr Williams declined to comment on whether he and Mr Thicke would appeal against the verdict. “We’re working out our next steps right now,” he said. But he was adamant that taking inspiration from other sources was a big part of the creative process. “Everything that’s around you in a room was inspired by something or someone,” he said. “If you kill that, there’s no creativity.”

これにあわせてか、TEDラジオで取り上げていた話題がオリジナルは何かというもの。どれもサンプリングなどに理解を示したものになっています。

What Is Original?
When is copying flattery, when is it thievery, and when is it sheer genius? In this hour, TED speakers explore how sampling, borrowing, and riffing make all of us innovators.






TEDのトークでは、以下のSteve Jobsのコメントを参照しながら、Androidに対しては激高しI'm going to destroy Android, because it's a stolen product. I'm willing to go thermonuclear war on thisと語ったJobsを少しちゃかしていました。。。



It comes down to trying to expose yourself to the best things that humans have done and then try to bring those things in to what you're doing.

And Picasso had a saying -- 'good artists copy; great artists steal' -- and we have always been shameless about stealing great ideas.

And I think part of what made the Macintosh great was that the people working on it were musicians and poets and artists and zoologists and historians who also happened to be the best computer scientists in the world.
