Music And The Improbability Of Copyright
"Is plagiarism inevitable in pop music? Thanks to combinatorics, the answer is certainly no for a song at full length. And the answer is probably still no if one focuses on just the heart of a song--whatever, legally speaking, that is. But even a genius would probably be unable to write a new pop song that doesn't resemble some old one for at least a bar or two." The Nation 04/30/13
