I don't listen to Van Halen much, but I came up with a riff that shares similarities to Van Halen's "Hot for Teacher", unintentionally. I definitely didn't do it on purpose, but I was wondering say, hypothetically, It got big airplay on the radio, would van halen be able to sue my ass? Thanks, the tempo is obviously slower and the riff seems pretty different to me, but it does have a similarity.
That was actually pretty rad. I enjoyed it a lot.
Thanks can anyone answer my question? I know music copyright infringement in court is pretty broad, I'm just wondering.
I don't hear it - and I"m notorious for accidentally getting dangerously close to tunes on my iPod. I think you're safe.
