Read the article about the case involving Tom Petty and Sam Smith : https://consequenceofsound.net/2015/01/tom-petty-awarded-songwriting-royalties-for-sam-smiths-stay-with-me/ Write a summary paragraph of the case. With the sheer volume of music now available online for listeners to enjoy, what do you think the chances are of creating an absolutely original sound without some resemblance to an already published work? Now, think about coding instead of music — is there a similarity? Give your thoughts on when (and if) code should be copyrighted as intellectual property. How would that affect your ability to “cheat” by looking up snippets of code on reddit or stack overflow; given the fact that copying someone else’s code as your own is already considered plagiarism.
