    I have always felt 'Under Pressure' and 'Ice Ice Baby' have had the same beat etc but of course theu have their differences that make them unique. Personally I would think bringing out a cover copying an actual song without permission is worse! And tbh alot of songs that have come out in the 2010's have copied an 80's song beat. For example Jason Derulo's song 'Fight For You' is pretty much a modern remake of TOTO's - Africa!

    In the Gaye state vs Ed Sheehan lawsuit, if they re register the song now, wouldn’t Ed Sheeran’s song be registered on a previous date, leaving that to be the “original” legally, allowing Ed Sheeran to sue for copyright and maybe win?

    I think what vanilla ice was trying to say is that his bass lines second phrase was started on a pickup note. And ended on the up beat. Unlike queens "under pressure" which started on a down beat and ended on a down beat. Plus "Ice ice baby" has one extra note due to the pickup note. But it does sound really similar even.

    That Christian Rapper triggers me. As a Christian i feel like he is not only using his 'Christianity'? As a career. And thats not only what he did. He is also making someone pay him because of something earilly dimilar too his song. Like what happened to FORGIVE AND FORGET. He didnt forgive and he also didnt forget. He is not a good example for a Christian
