LOS ANGELES — Singer Beyonce Knowles is being accused of stealing choreography on her ‘Formation’ World Tour.

The ‘Run the world’ singer, who kicked the tour in Miami, Florida on Wednesday, stole the routines from shows like “De La Guarda” and “El Descueve”, reports aceshowbiz.com.

Professional dancer and personal trainer Marlyn Ortiz took to Instagram to share a clip of the alleged part which was stolen by Beyonce. She wrote alongside the video: “I’m sorry I don’t bash artists! But I respect fellow creative artists… And I don’t like to use social media to promote something that can be perceived as negativity… But Beyonce, you have the nerve to steal exact concepts and choreography from other real creative geniuses”. “…It’s ok to be inspired but at least make the effort to make it your own,” she added.

While Ortiz mentioned that Knowles stole the moves on ‘Partition’ music video from Crazy Horse Paris, one commenter defended Beyonce, saying that Crazy Horse and other shows were credited in the singer’s tour book.

US judge dismisses Taylor Swift ‘Shake It Off’ copyright lawsuit

LOS ANGELES — A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit accusing singer Taylor Swift of stealing lyrics for her song ‘Shake It Off’ on Tuesday ruling the phrases in question were not sufficiently original to merit copyright protection.

Songwriters Sean Hall and Nathan Butler brought the suit last fall, arguing that the chorus of the song borrowed from their 2001 composition, ‘Playas Gon’ Play’.

In his ruling, Judge Michael W Fitzgerald held that combining the phrases, ‘Playas gonna play’ and ‘haters gonna hate,’ does not entail sufficient originality to warrant copyright protection, Variety reported.

Swift’s 2014 song reached No 1 on the pop charts and marked her evolution from country to pop music.

Swift’s lyrics from the chorus of ‘Shake It Off’ are, ‘the players gonna play, play, play, play, play, and the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate.’

Attorneys for Swift asked US District Judge Michael Fitzgerald in January to dismiss the case.

“In order for such short phrases to be protected under the Copyright Act, they must be more creative than the lyrics at issue here,” Fitzgerald ruled, according to court papers.

The songwriters who sued Swift did not allege Swift’s song stole musical elements, the judge said, and phrases about players and haters existed in pop culture before 2001.
