Posted by plakplak

This brazilian dude released an album totally ripping of BF5!! And he was nominated for a prize for best composer.

Lets play a game: which song is the original?

What the hell has this world come to?!? Ben, Darren, and Robert should sue him! I swear video even had the same freakin name!

I'm digging sports and wine in Portuguese. "I don't understand it, guess that makes me Tina fey!

Wow, that is pretty amazing. And on his facebook page he suggests he is "influenced by BFF" but everyone is influenced by everyone these days so who cares! What a load. His songs are virtually note for note rip offs of BFF songs under different titles.

They'd make a pretty good cover band though Wink Maybe their tickets don't cost $200...

Good news, he was disqualified from the songwriting competition he was in after a local paper ran a story about him.

I came to bring the same bad news.

My radio show, in brazilian portuguese, show clearly th rip off by comparison: <a href="http://mixlr.com/delfin/showreel/ninho-do-coruja-2013-edicao-12-la-e-um-lugar-que-eu-nao-entendo/" title="http://mixlr.com/delfin/showreel/ninho-do-coruja-2013-edicao-12-la-e-um-lugar-que-eu-nao-entendo/">http://mixlr.com/delfin/showreel/ninho-do-coruja-2013-edicao-12-la-e-um-...</a>

(at the beginning and near the 2nd hour of the radio show)

Look at the words (in portuguese also) of the producer, officially, at Facebook: Palavras do produtor do disco, Luciano Albo sobre a tal situação:

Na edição da Zero Hora do dia 23/03, me deparei com uma matéria apontando semelhanças do cd de estréia do compositor Diego Lopes com a obra do norte-americano Ben Folds, argumentando que o mesmo sofra uma desclassificação do Prêmio Açorianos.

Enquanto produtor do cd, eu sempre soube da afinidade entre os dois trabalhos,
já que conheço bem a obra do Ben Folds Five, mas nunca achei que isso pudesse acarretar algum problema, já que as melodias do Diego Lopes são originais.

Na matéria da ZH temos a sugestão que Diego deveria ter citado Ben Folds no encarte do cd. No entanto, não me recordo de ver textos explicativos nos discos do Led Zeppelin dizendo “nossa obra está baseada” em Howling Wolf, Bert Jansch, Albert King, Willie Dixon…ou mesmo no projeto paralelo do Green Day, Foxboro Hot Tubs, citando no encarte Kinks, Who e Monkees.

Estamos falando de primeiro disco de um compositor jovem, buscando a sua identidade, baseando a sua criação em artistas com estéticas que o influenciam.

Eu aposto as minhas fichas no talento do Diego e sei que o tempo mostrará o que ele pode oferecer como um compositor autoral.
