Miley Cyrus was served a $300 million copyright infringement lawsuit by a Jamaican songwriter over her 2013 his single, “We Can’t Stop”. The plaintiff, Michael May, better known by his stage name Flourgon, claims in the suit that “We Can’t Stop” closely resembles his 1988 reggae track, “We Run Things”.According to a report from Reuters, May alleges:“We Run Things” has been “‘a favorite for lovers of reggae music worldwide’ since reaching No. 1 in his home country, and that about 50 percent of [Miley’s] ‘We Can’t Stop’ comes from him. … He accused Cyrus and her label, RCA Records, owned by Sony Corp, of misappropriating his material, including the phrase “We run things. Things no run we,” which she sings as “We run things. Things don’t run we.”While the two songs may not sound alike, May’s case surrounds the lyrics and the general musical aesthetic. The suit claims that Cyrus’ song “owes the basis of its chart-topping popularity and its highly-lucrative success to plaintiff May’s protected, unique, creative and original content.” Flougron may have a case after he won “formal copyright protection” from the U.S. copyright office for all musical arrangements in “We Run Things” last November.“We Can’t Stop” was written and produced by Mike Will Made It, P-Nasty, and Rock City, with additional writing from Cyrus as well as Doug E. Fresh and Slick Rick (presumably because the song’s chorus borrows a line from their 1985 track, “La Di Do Di”). If the plaintiff wins the case, or Cyrus’ camp settles, it is likely that he will be added to the list of songwriters for “We Can’t Stop” in addition to some sort of financial reparation. Such a settlement was reached when Sam Smith settled a copyright infringement case with the late Tom Petty over the melodic similarities between his hit “Stay With Me” and Petty’s classic “Won’t Back Down”However, in a recent case against Taylor Swift (that’s eerily similar to this one) regarding the similarity of her hit track “Shake It Off” to 3LW‘s 2001 song “Playas Gon’ Play”, the suit was dismissed by the presiding judge. As he explained, the lyrics in question were, in fact, too “banal” to copyright. While the lyrical similarities are apparent if you know what you’re looking for, it is uncertain how this may all play out in the legal arena.“We Can’t Stop”, from Miley Cyrus’ Bangerz, was met with initial public backlash for a variety of reasons including its sexualized portrayal of Cyrus, a former child star, its drug-referencing lyrics, and its alleged reappropriation of African American culture. As Reuters notes, “We Can’t Stop was kept from the top spot by Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines,” itself the subject of a high-profile copyright case over its resemblance to a 1977 Marvin Gaye song.You can listen to both songs below:Flougron – “We Run Things”[Video: ZionTopSound]Miley Cyrus – “We Can’t Stop”[Video: MileyCyrusVEVO][H/T – Reuters]

To put it simply, Badger basketball is frustrating.I had developed several theories throughout this losing streak for why Wisconsin is failing in the improved Big Ten, all of which fell apart in spectacular fashion.At first I thought the lack of bench scoring might be the problem, and UW was relying too much on their starters. Then Keaton Nankivil went off for 21 points on six of eight shooting, and the Badgers still lost (I am aware he is technically a starter, but at 16.5 minutes per game, I’m counting him as a bench player.)Next, I considered perhaps the absence of a spark from the freshmen was the root of UW’s problems. Of course, Jordan Taylor willed the team into overtime against Iowa with several clutch three pointers, and the Badgers still lost.Undeterred, I sat down to write this column determined to find the source of the longest losing streak in Bo Ryan’s career at Wisconsin. I was going to pore through statistics, break down this six-game losing streak and offer a stunning analysis of why Bo’s squad has gone in the tank. I was even prepared to end the column with a John Madden “Boom!” to celebrate my triumph.Of course, about 10 minutes into the whole process I was reminded that head coach Bo Ryan is a much smarter man than I, and since he hasn’t figured this streak out, it would prove to be the ultimate exercise in futility.But because I had no other column ideas, I plowed ahead anyways hoping to uncover the source of the Badgers problems. What I discovered gave me a headache, so I can only imagine the pain it must be inducing in our hoop squad’s fearless leader.There is no problem with the Badgers.At least no glaring, obvious if-they-could-only-do-this-they-would-win type of flaw.In fact, the men’s basketball team is disturbingly average in almost every single way. They rank fifth in scoring, and they are tied for fourth in defense in Big Ten conference games. They rank sixth in scoring margin in the Big Ten. Rebounding, field goal percentage, turnovers, assists, blocks — you name it. The Badgers are between eighth and fourth in almost every major category.For you efficiency stat geeks, UW rates fifth in the Big Ten in total efficiency, according to statistic analyst Ken Pomeroy.Even in the one category UW leads — free throw percentage — they are only eighth in free throws attempted, which equals (drum roll please…) tied for fifth in shots made from the charity stripe.Sorry for the statistic overload, and if your eyes glazed over while reading them, just trust me: The Badgers rank right in the middle of the Big Ten.Why then, is the basketball team ninth in the conference, and what does this mean for the remaining 10 games on the schedule?Why have the Badgers lost two games in overtime during this streak and have two others that went down to the last possession?It means Ryan’s team needs to improve in less quantifiable, more frustrating aspects of the game: luck and play in the clutch.This can be a comfort to fans or the final nail in the coffin, all depending on your point of view. Either you have determined that with leading scorers like Marcus Landry and Trevon Hughes, UW cannot compete in crunch time, or you look at it the way I do.In Bo we trust.This season has been brutal to watch, no doubt about it. It’s been made even worse with shocking losses to the likes of Northwestern and Iowa.But I would follow Ryan off a bridge like a lemming, and I am not willing to write off the season just yet. The statistics show this team has it in them to make some noise in the final games of the season. And Ryan has yet to underachieve in his seven years at Wisconsin. Usually, Ryan takes average teams and makes them Wisconsin teams. So maybe I couldn’t find a problem because there was nothing to find. And maybe I am blindly optimistic, but maybe Ryan can stun everyone once again.Michael is a junior majoring in journalism. Think he is crazy for putting so much faith in Bo Ryan?
