CASE study 1:

In 1976, ex-Beatle George Harrison was found guilty of copyright infringement for his hit single, "My 

Sweet Lord." Bright Tunes Music Corporation had obtained the copyright for the 1963 hit, "He's So 

Fine," which was written by Ronald Mack and originally performed by The Chiffons. Did George 

Harrison borrow his musical ideas from Mack's hit song? Judge for yourself. 

 Listen to the songs here: http://www.benedict.com/audio/Harrison/Harrison.aspx
