Lana being sued by Radiohead

So sadly Radiohead are suing Lana over Get Free (I presume) which is very sad. I can hear the similarities to Creep but I'm pretty sure it's just the progression. It's a shame because I thought Radiohead and Thom Yorke would have been a little more respectful than that but sadly not. Get Free is one of Lana's best songs in my opinion too :(

100% is too much for some parts of the song sounding similar. I think 40% would be correct. Especially knowing Radiohead themselves hate Creep.

I don't understand why Radiohead are going after her.

Sure the chord progression is the same and some parts of the melodies but what do they get out of this. It's an album track.

It's not gonna be a huge smash. The royalties will amount to like 0$? Can someone explain if there's financial benefit or if they're just being petty and protective of their intellectual property.

Why stan Lana, listen to her full new album, and sue because of the last song. Let the girl go. :laughga:

This always happens in songs, it's a bit stupid they're doing this to her.

It sounds like if Gaga were suing Nick Jonas for Find You vs. PI

The opening and pre-chorus are similar progressions to Creep. That being said she was generous offering the 40 per cent of publishing. The fact that they want 100 per cent is insane and flat out wrong. They essentially are taking total credit for someone’s work due to similar chord progressions. 

I do hear the similarities now that it’s been made an issue, but before I never linked the two songs (and trust me, I’d recognize a Creep ripoff).

It was supposed to be like that after Radiohead confirmed to NME they're not suing her, but it's a different story now because of this tweet.

Asking for 100% publishing is totally too much and unjustifiable. She made the right move to expose them. Unbelievably greedy.

I hope they leave with nothing, humiliated and wishing they'd took her 40%. :lana:

They don’t even deserve 40% considering they took the melody for “Creep” from The Hollies and were succesfuly sued by them.

100% is just flat out ridiculous. There are some similarities between the songs, but not nearly enough to get 100% of the publishing. Radiohead is cancelled. I hope they get nothing.
