Uke Kookaburra vs Down Under? (62* d) RE: Kookaburra vs Down Under? 09 Feb 10


Can't help wondering how Men @ Work would react if somebody plucked out the eight-or-so notes of "Land Down Under"'s iconic chorus melody and put them in a song. Which was then a massive hit.

Hmm, would they not be thinking about getting a little compensation?

It's all very well shaking our heads at the absurdity of the court ruling, but hey, if you wish to live by the copyright, then be prepared to... er, die by the copyright. (As it were).
