Kid Rock Copycat Suit Dismissed

(Jam!) A federal judge has dismissed a Louisiana musician's copyright infringement lawsuit against Kid Rock, ruling he had not proved that Kid Rock's "Somebody's Gotta Feel This" was a ripoff of the man's own music.

"The works are not so strikingly or substantially similar as to preclude independent creation," U.S. District Judge Mary Ann Vial Lemmon wrote in her ruling this week.

Lemmon cited expert testimony from both sides, plus her side-by-side review of the songs from which she concluded "a layman would not view the works as substantially similar." - more on this story
