This has been on my mind for a while now, and i really do wonder what you fine lads and gals think of this.
I have stumbled upon a few authors who have been copying their own songs, shifting the tempo a bit, or a note here and there and call it a “new” song.
One new author in particular has 3 epic songs, the famous 4 chords, same instruments, same structure, just a tiny difference and they are accepted as new songs.
In my opinion, this is completely unfair to those who try and create something fresh and new and are working hard, instead of copy/pasting their work and try to make a quick buck as soon as possible… saturating the marketplace, and lowering the standard and quality.
I understand that some templates work well, and you take it from there… but a simple copy/paste plus a tiny change does not seem fair and legit. Am i alone here or is this frowned upon by others as well?
