    Default Is this a case of copyright infringement?

    I think most of you are familiar with this tune from Les Miserables:



    But take that tune and pick up the tempo. What you get is this:



    Any copyright attorneys out there?

    Judging by the visuals, I'd say the first one may hold a sturdy copyright, while the second seems forgotten and unable to rise back and sue anyone. Stll though, looks better and funnier than any '90s-2010s cop shows I've seen.
    Why are you into this stuff, and why do you care anyway?

    Not that I care. But I find the similarities in the tunes interesting. The only difference is the tempo.

    Imo, both tunes sound quite different to each other. Even when I sped up the tempo of "Do You Hear the People Sing?" in Les Miserables (2012), I found its rhythm to be more punchy and less regular compared to that in Car 54, Where Are You?.

    I'm no copyright attorney of course but I think it's safe to say that there's no copyright infringement here. In any case, I doubt any respectable attorney/lawyer would be able to find any concrete evidence to the contrary.

    Still, let's suppose that song is an act of copyright infringement, then in all fairness it looks like Hasbro's got some explaining to do...

    Watch the video below from 0min48sec and then the next one. Apparently the tune in the first video is legit, and yet it's so like "A Little Less Conversation" I really don't know how Hasbro got away with it. Then again, maybe I do: kerching!!!

    Huh. I didn't catch that reference untill i heard what the name of that song sounds like. To me it's just them purposely hinting to the song to give more background. Has the original artist shed a tear yet? Then let's take it out on Hasbro! Fighting Is Magic was cancelled because of their slappsuits!
