Politeness doesn’t reflect in today’s time: Amitabh Bachchan

NEW DELHI — Bollywood mega star Amitabh Bachchan believes that in today’s time, politeness and obligations which were very prominent in the past as far as celebrities’ public appearances were concerned, are long gone.

Sharing his thoughts on his blog, the National Award winner expressed that “the art of public appearance has taken on a select different engagement. Guided and conducted by efficient managers of the talent”.

“Artistes now get paid considerations, for their presence. Paid for speeches and visits and so on. That is a given matter now.”

“Politeness and obligation of the past does not reflect in today’s time. And there is an instruct for those that manage them to negotiate the value of the presence… Nothing wrong. But there are some that refrain from it,” the “Wazir” actor added.

Sharing that most politicians and talented people in the west undergo the same treatment, Big B added that the source of earning increases “when retired public figure is invited to functions and events for their very experienced views on any particular subject or faith”.

“It is delicate and sensitive, but also practical and in the times of today,” he added.

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.
