Seems like the girl ???did it again??? ??? Britney Spears has yet gotten entangled in another law suit filed by the Bellamy Brothers for plagiarizing the title of her latest single ???Hold it Against Me??? which is supposedly ???ripped off??? of their 1979 song with similar wordings. The Bellamy Brothers were not contemplating legal action initially, however, after consulting their lawyers they are filing a multi-million dollar lawsuit for plagiarism.
According to Contactmusic,
BRITNEY SPEARS is facing legal action over her new single HOLD IT AGAINST ME after she was accused of “ripping off” the title of the song.
American country rock duo the Bellamy Brothers – comprised of David and Howard Bellamy – claim the song is “too close” to their 1979 ballad If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body Would You Hold It Against Me?
David Bellamy has previously insisted they won’t be taking Spears to court, but he admits he and his brother are now reconsidering their options and are in talks with lawyers over plagiarism claims.
He says, “We will without doubt take the appropriate legal action if our attorneys agree we’ve been ripped off. Surely there is more original stuff out there to do rather than rehash old titles.”
It seemed as if 2011 had a great comeback in store for Britney because going by the great reviews she got after the video release of her new single ???Hold It Against Me??? on the 18th of February ??? things looked promising. However, it sure is a sad turn of events for all the Britney fans out there considering the fact that she???s put in a lot to arrive in shape and give her best. I don???t think a few words that sound similar to another track should be termed as ???plagiarism??? and ???lack of creativity??? because the two tracks are completely different in music and genre. It seems like 2011 is full of ups and downs for Britney Spears and I wish her the very best!
