    Have You Heard The Lastest News About Sam Smith Having To Share His Royalties With Another Singer?

    I think the guy got robbed because the song "stay with me" does not have any similarities to the others singer's music. What do you think about this situation?

    There is some similarity in the (hook) of the song when he says, "Want you stay with me"  with Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers -
    "I Won't Back Down". "Stay With Me" almost sounds like a slowed down version of Tom Petty's song.
    Generally speaking these types of suits are difficult to prove. Therefore I'm incline to believe there must have been enough musical notes in line for the courts to say there is some copyright infringement.

      I don't know about that but I think it was a wrong decision in the first place and Sam Smith got the short end of the stick on that call.

      Venus if you "don't know" how can you automatically say Sam Smith got the short end of the stick? or Are you really saying "you don't care"? If someone showed you notes on a sheet of music proving the songs are very similar would it matter to you?

      Yes, I think Sam Smith got the short end of the stick because his royalties had been given away to Tom Petty not the other way around. Theirs always someone on the other end phishing for a prey.

      It's not the other way around because Tom Petty wrote his music years before. He is asserting that Sam Smith stole or copied his musical notes composition. Apparently Tom proved it in court which is not an easy thing to do! Sam Smith will be fine
