LALITPUR — Nepali folk-rock band Nepathya on Saturday performed a charity show at Jawalakhel Ground.

The concert was the continuation of the ‘Coca-Cola Pheri Uthne Chha Nepal’ campaign that was propelled a year ago with a goal to generate funds to be used for the earthquake victims.

The fund collected from the concert will go towards rehabilitating children affected by the April 2015 earthquake, according to an organizer.

A year since the massive earthquake that claimed about 9000 lives and thousands of houses damages in Nepal, the live concert aimed to heal and also support the deprived and vulnerable populations.

The Concert is the joint effort of the concerned NGOs —Child Protection Nepal, Work ForA Cause Nepal, Sano Paila, WILL, Aishworya Children Home and Raise of Hope Nepal and organized and managed by Bandwagon by Positive Vibes- an event management company.

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.
