Madonna accused of plagiarism

London, Feb 14 A Brazilian musician claims that pop diva Madonna’s song “Give me all your luvin” is a copy of his track.

Musician Joao Brasil claims the chorus of the Material Girl’s new song, which she performs with Nicki Minaj and M.I.A., is a rip-off of his own tune “L.O.V.E. Banana”, reports express.co.uk.

“I still don’t understand what happened. I’m a huge fan of hers. If it’s plagiarism, then even better,” Brasil told Brazil’s Folha da Sao Paulo newspaper.

Brasil’s record company bosses and legal team are now considering whether to take court action over the allegation. However, Brasil is adamant Madonna is his heroine and he doesn’t want to sue her.

“She is always at the cutting edge of music, so it’s a good sign about what I do… It’s in their hands, they’re looking at how to proceed and what they can do. But personally I don’t want to do anything. The last thing I need in my life is a fight with Madonna,” he added.

    the term is called “fragmented literal similarity” its a form of claim in an infringement case where only parts were copied or plagiarized, Madonna if she loved all the people she steals from would pay them and ask permission to use their work as obviously money in the end is what she gains aside from notoriety and she needs this in order to prove her ability to do business with specific people in the music industry, any person with integrity would promote a single they like and not steal from it, its a sign of respect, she has none.
    here is a link to the web blog which shows just how many artists and works Madonna has ripped off over the past decades
