Juice Wrld Served With $15M ‘Lucid Dreams’ Copyright Lawsuit

JuiceWrld陷入1500万美元的‘Lucid Dreams’版权诉讼

 

Juice Wrld’s most-streamed song “Lucid Dreams” is back in the press and not because of its career-highlighting success this time. Released in May 2018 and making it to No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 Charts.


Juice Wrld最受欢迎的歌曲“Lucid Dreams”再受媒体热议此次并不是因为它在职业生涯上的成功。这首歌2018年5月发布,并在公告牌百强单曲榜上排名第二。


The Chicago-born artist is being sued for $15 million by punk-rock band Yellowcard, according to XXL Magazine, for copyright infringement. The group claims that “Lucid Dreams” sounds a little too close to their 2006 hit “Holly Wood Died” and that he illegally sampled certain elements.

 

XXL杂志报道,这位芝加哥出生的艺术家因侵犯版权被朋克摇滚乐队Yellowcard起诉,索赔1500万美元。该乐队称,“Lucid Dreams”听起来与他们2006年的热门歌曲“Holly Wood Died”太接近了,而且他还非法摘取某些元素进行模仿

 

A complaint was filed on Monday (Oct. 21) under the United States District Court of California. Yellowcard made a statement requesting that they should be awarded damages from Juice Wrld’s tours and public appearances because of his massive mainstream success giving him “substantial opportunities to tour and perform around the world.”


诉状于周一(10月21日)提交至美国加州地方法院。Yellowcard发表了一份声明,要求他们应该从Juice Wrld的巡回演出和公开露面中获得赔偿,因为他在主流音乐上的巨大成功给了他“大量的机会在世界各地巡回演出”。

 

The suit also states that Juice and his producers were aware that they copied “Holly Wood Died” because it “directly misappropriates quantitative and qualitatively important portions of ['Holly Wood Died'] in a manner that is easily recognizable to the ordinary observer.”


诉讼还指出,Juice和他的制作人具有主观恶意,因为它以一种普通人很容易辨认的方式直接大量盗用了'Holly Wood Died'重要部分。

 

“As alleged in the complaint, this is not just a generic emo-rap song, but is a blatant copy of significant original compositional elements of ‘Holly Wood Died’ in several respects,” said Yellowcard’s lawyer, Richard Busch, in a statement to the Rolling Stone.

 

Yellowcard的律师理查德·布施在给《滚石》杂志(the Rolling Stone)的一份声明中说:“正如起诉书中所指控的,这首歌不仅是一首普通的电子说唱歌曲,而且在几个方面公然抄袭了Holly Wood Died’的重要原创部分

 

He has not spoken out publicly in response to the lawsuit.

他还没有对这起诉讼做出公开回应。

EPO signs reinforced partnership agreement with Malaysia

EPO与马来西亚签署加强合作协议


EPO President António Campinos and the Director General of the Intellectual Property Corporation of Malaysia (MyIPO), Dato' Mohd. Roslan bin Mahayudin, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Reinforced Partnership between their two offices on the margins of the WIPO General Assemblies in Geneva yesterday. The agreement follows on from longstanding co-operation between Europe and Malaysia in the field of patents going back to the 1990s.

 

EPO主席Antonio Campinos和马来西亚千亿国际平台公司(MyIPO)总干事Dato' Mohd. Roslan bin Mahayudin在日内瓦召开的世界千亿国际平台组织大会期间签署了一份谅解备忘录,加强了两个办事处之间的伙伴关系。该协议延续了欧洲和马来西亚自上世纪90年代以来在专利领域的长期合作。

 

MyIPO is the first intellectual property office in Southeast Asia to sign this advanced type of bilateral co-operation agreement with the EPO, and the fourth office worldwide to date, following the recent signature of agreements with the offices of South Africa, Ethiopia and Argentina.


MyIPO是东南亚首家与欧洲专利局签署这种先进双边合作协议的千亿国际平台局,也是迄今为止全球第四个与南非、埃塞俄比亚和阿根廷签署协议的千亿国际平台局。


"I am very pleased to conclude this reinforced partnership with the Intellectual Property Corporation of Malaysia, a close co-operation partner for many years and one of the most advanced IP offices in the dynamic ASEAN region," said EPO President Campinos. "Our co-operation is expected to improve patent-related services for both local innovators and European companies, not just in Malaysia but in the wider region, thereby further strengthening the global patent system, which is one of our strategic objectives for the coming years."


EPO主席Campinos说:“我很高兴与马来西亚千亿国际平台公司达成这一加强的伙伴关系。马来西亚千亿国际平台公司是多年来的密切合作伙伴,也是活跃的东盟地区最先进的千亿国际平台办事处之一。”“我们的合作有望改善本地创新者和欧洲公司(不仅是马来西亚,还包括更广泛的地区)的专利相关服务,从而进一步加强全球专利体系,这是我们未来几年的战略目标之一。”

 

Under the MoU, the EPO and MyIPO will co-operate over the next five years on making their patent systems as efficient, user-friendly and predictable as possible for businesses from both regions. In particular, the EPO will support MyIPO in increasing efficiency, timeliness and quality in its patent grant process with a view to promoting investment and technology transfer between Europe and Malaysia. By systematically and effectively using EPO work products, tools and practices, MyIPO will strengthen its search and examination capacities to ensure a high quality, timely and efficient examination of both national first and second filings.  


根据谅解备忘录,欧洲专利局和MyIPO将在未来5年内展开合作,使双方的专利系统尽可能有效、易用和可预测。特别是,欧洲专利局将支持MyIPO提高其专利授予过程的效率、及时性和质量,以促进欧洲和马来西亚之间的投资和技术转让。通过系统有效地使用EPO工作产品、工具和实践,MyIPO将加强其搜索和审查能力,以确保对第一次第二次申请文件进行高质量、及时和有效的审查。


Malaysia is one of the 10 member states of the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN), the third largest economy in the region in terms of GDP, and the EU's third largest trading partner among the ASEAN countries. The region has some 640 million consumers and ranks as the eighth economy in the world. As a group the ASEAN countries are the EU's third largest trading partner outside Europe, after the US and China. Ensuring better access for European exporters to the dynamic ASEAN market is a priority for the EPO and its member states.

 

马来西亚是东南亚国家联盟(东盟)的10个成员国之一,是该地区第三大经济体,也是东盟国家中欧盟的第三大贸易伙伴。该地区拥有约6.4亿消费者,是世界第八大经济体。作为一个整体,东盟国家是欧盟在欧洲以外的第三大贸易伙伴,仅次于美国和中国。确保欧洲出口商更好地进入充满活力的东盟市场,是EPO及其成员国的优先事项。
