list of 20 plagiarized Korean songs by Korea Music Copyright
This news is revealed by the Committee on Culture, Sports, Tourism, Broadcasting & Communicationsthat 20 Korean songs (could be more) have been set up as plagiarism since 2000, and the royalties earned by total around $1,724,138 USD.
Jin Sungho, the Committee revealed this news by the Korea Music Copyright Association. The songs accommodate MC Mong’s “Letter to You,” Hyori’s “I’m Back” and “Swing,” Lee Seung Ki’s “Mask,” Son Dambi’s “Saturday Night,” Lee Seung Chul’s “Scream,” CNBlue’s “Loner,” and GDragon’s “Heartbreaker.”.
Jin Sungho went on to state, “To plagiarize is to steal a creation by someone else. It is unjust for royalties to be paid when songs are found to be plagiarized and/or suspected to be plagiarized. We will be aggressively pressing the government offices to create a guideline on plagiarism in order to protect the rights of music producers.”
