Copying or imitating is not plagiarism unless you not create the carbon copy of a write-up originally written by someone else, because it amounts to stealing. Better to copy the style, not the words. Use <a rel="dofollow" href="http://www.plagtracker.com/turnitin.html">Turnitin alternative</a> to make sure that you are not plagiarizing unintentionally.

i remember reading a quote from Chris Martin right when Viva La Vida was coming out and he says something along the lines of "We try to copy from everyone and just make sure its obscure enough that people wont know"...again not his exact words and he stated this kind of sheepishly. At any rate, i always thought Coldplay were under the impression that they were Radiohead and now they think they are U2 and Satrianis song makes an interesting case for plagiarism although it came 4 months after it was hit...

I tried to compare the two. Got 30 seconds into mady by manilow and decided to stab out my ear drums

[quote="Maniqui Lazer"][quote="Babaghanoush"]. Makes me think of the accusations that for the Strokes' song "Razor Blade" Julian stole its riff from Barry Manilow's song "Mandy."[/quote]
WOW

they don't sound the same! at all!![/quote]

I'm just stating what others said. Google (together) the words "Razor Blade" "Mandy" "Strokes" and read the listings that come up for yourself.

And it's not plagiarism unless it was deliberately copied. Makes me think of the accusations that for the Strokes' song "Razor Blade" Julian stole its riff from Barry Manilow's song "Mandy."
