And in that video, very early on, there are multiple works with snippets that are just as similar.

And again the lyricists were found liable. And others who would have had nothing to do with the riff. They literally couldn't have copied it, as they had nothing to do with it.

Thee are just opportunistic lawyers taking advantage of the fact that jurors cannot be experts on the subject matter. No evidence of actual copying was presented: it was inferred by taking advantage of the jury's lack of musical knowledge.

Horrible case, and it shouldn't matter if it was against someone you don't like. I'm not defending Dr. Luke, but the ability to write music. The copyright system is bad enough as is for music.
