Group Assignment 1

Listen to the following two songs and compare the melodies.

Use you ears and music theory training to see how similar or how different they are from the other. Was copyright infringed upon? Give supporting evidence for each case.

After your group has reached those conclusions, read this article about how it was settled.

Do you feel a fair conclusion was reached? Your groups will debate each other on these two separate points. My hope is each group will fall on different sides but if need be, we can rock, paper, scissors to see which side your group will support!
