David Guetta he lacked originality to his hit “Dangerous” ? An artist named Andre Dudek decided to attack the French DJ to justice because the song too much like one of his compositions from the 1980s, “Illuminations”. The obscure piece, which was not protected by copyright so far, can not be found online to make comparison with the worldwide hit of French DJ.
The complaint also addressed singer Sam Martin and majors Warner Music and Atlantic Records. Certain users had also found a small resemblance between “Dangerous” and a passage in the piano piece “Andara” of Ludivico Einaudi, composed in 2006.
Untangling fact from fiction
As Sam Smith, accused of plagiarism for his hit “Stay with me”, or Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke (“Blurred Lines”), David Guetta could therefore be forced to affix the name of Andre Dudek in the list of rights holders could get royalties. He must also pay a whopping $ 6 million, no less. Unless the trial sees no similarity between the two pieces. “Dangerous” was also featured as a soundtrack advertising T-Mobile, the leading mobile operator in the United States.
