GDragon, who has recently been in the spotlight for plagiarism accusations for his solo debut, is once again in media and public�s scrutiny with plagiarism accusations directly from an American media site.

On an American site Pollstar, a post titled �The Other Kind Of Song-Sharing� was posted up on 8th September, saying �The leader of the popular boy band Big Bang has been accused of plagiarism, specifically stealing from songs of Western artists.�

The author went on to write:
"The accusations have been so strong that several publishing companies have said they will investigate.

The title track of the album, �Heartbreaker,� is said to have a striking resemblance to Flo Rida�s �Right Round.� Also, the song �Butterfly� seems to rip off Oasis� �She�s Electric.�

The rights to �Right Round� in Korea are controlled by four companies: Warner Chappell Music Korea, Sony ATV Publishing Korea, Fuji Pacific Music Korea and EMI Music Publishing Korea.

Both Warner Chappell and Sony ATV said they have noticed the similarities and will check with the composers of �Right Round.� However, EMI Music said it saw no similarity.

G-Dragon�s management company, YG Entertainment, has not officially commented."

With the American media directly criticising GDragon about plagiarising music, it seems that the whole talk about music plagiarism will just reignite.

it doesn't matter at all.
what matters most is that his music
or songs make people feel happy
or whatever they feel. ^_________^
