That's the point why Kernel Records is suing and not GRG himself. If they loose the case he won't be personally responsible.
I love how Google Translate mangles the name "Suni" :-)
the violation of law is actually larger than the Sun

Gallefoss however, continued to defend their rights by moving the Sun

Nice one! :)
...I would say that someone called sun is either gay or... well, gay. =P

I'm more impressed with the headline:
Little Money
no longer valid

Oh no! Even Nine Inch Nails is being produced by Timbaland now!

Trent Reznor also sympathizes with Charles Manson and Jeffrey Dahmer, so not surprising.

Chris is pretty spot on in that PDF, though the attitude was perhaps a bit childish for such an important document. It wouldn't surprise me if it would have to be rewritten or supplied with similar statements from other experts in the US case.

Good luck to GRG anyway - I really hope Timbaland gets nailed hard for this.

all the best for glenn in this case, whatever the outcome may be.

Yeah, its a pretty solid analysis until this quote:

The evidence convinces me that the producers heard a musical work through their ownership of Commodore 64 playback technology <..> and realized that it was much more creative and musically accomplished than they could hope to do on their own

Which is a downright ridiculous statement considering who he is targeting (all sample ripping aside).

okkie: Exactly - childish and stupid thing to say in a legal document.

Does anyone know who wrote this mod. I am pretty sure it's being used on a new jaguar game that's being sold for $80. You can hear it in this video, in the title screen.

One 'GORF' is claiming that he wrote that particular music.

He sells the game he used it in by his group 3DSSS (3D Stooges) for $80 a pop on Atari jaguar.

"I beleive I wrote in my madtracker mod maker ...I can assure you, I did not copy it.....but it does have some similarity in the begining. I've been amusician for over 30 years and am quite capable of composing
my own music. "

It's a total fucking rip. :/

I'm no musician but to my untrained ear that sounds like identical instruments, identical pattern data just with more volume and a quicker tempo.

His excuse sounds pathetic considering the similarities, and his refusal to let people examine the Module makes me think he has something to hide.

Yea, you reckon? Hell yeah!

Don't forget - he's selling this game for big money... it's disgusting. Wonder what else is in that game & has been lifted from scene artists? Nothing graphical I'd expect, it looks like some kind of CGA PD game... 64 bits? Atari sucks real hard in 2009.
Plus, the guy is obviously an asshole.

1) The samples sound similar, but then they are quite basic oldschool samples.

2) The pattern data is similar-ish in terms of chord progression and style, but they're clearly different basslines and the drums are completely not the same at all. So since there is only bassline and drums in the clip which the accusation is based on... ?

3) The guy sounds arrogant, but people in glass houses, you know.

4) The game looks crap, but obviously some people are willing to pay $80 for it. Enthusiasts are strange sometimes.

5) Atari has always sucked hard.
