    No. Similar to that song just a little bit, is not plagiarism

  • Peter Russell (@petejrussell) 6 years ago

    Well it seems that the song has been officially presented now, and that – in fact – it was removed earlier because it wasn’t officially presented yet. Once again, no basis to this story except trolling the ESC community for hits.

    And one other thing: if you really want to know how a nice opinionated website about Eurovision looks like, I suggest you have a look at WiwiBloggs. They know how to make a difference between speculation, objective facts and opinion columns. And they’re probably twice as passionate, edgy and sharp than you will ever be. Not to mention the fact that their team actually can write in English. So take a leaf out off their books and then reconsider the way you’re trying to give information about Eurovision.

  • Nikita Volkov (@unarubiatonta) 6 years ago

    I don’t know why I waste my time checking this website for Eurovision updates. You guys from Oikotimes are just pathetic. Pathetic. You call yourselves an “independent, passionate” website and are nothing but a bunch of amateurs and scandal-seekers who cannot even make the effort to write in correct English. You have no authority to declare that anything is a “clear copy” of anything, that claim corresponds to the authors of the song at stake and ultimately to the EBU. I’m seriously tired of it. Not to mention the disrespectful and childish way (hahahaha T_T sick) you address people who are critical with your lack of accuracy and quality. You will now probably get back to me and ask why I keep visiting you; well, I’ll tell you already, unlike you, I like to verify information and contrast with different sources, even those which are clearly labelled within the Eurovision community as crap and not to be trusted, such as Oikotimes. Once again, pathetic.

  • Fotis Konstantopoulos reporting from Greece 6 years ago

    @ sergy: that’s your problem dear I am not a psychiatrist to solve anyone’s problem my friend :-) keep visiting keep visiting… :-)))))

  • Sergy Ber 6 years ago

    After you have lost the respect to me you expect I answer you? LOL

  • Peter Russell (@petejrussell) 6 years ago

    It was removed because it was released prematurely. It’s supposed to be presented later today. I’m confused as to where the official word is from Channel One or the EBU are to back up your claims?

  • Fotis Konstantopoulos reporting from Greece 6 years ago

    @MANDELLA TROP: dear you may be right but AS ALWAYS oikotimes is to blame for everything in this world hahahahahahaha

  • Fotis Konstantopoulos reporting from Greece 6 years ago

    @ sergy: one last thing: WEIRDLY Channel One removed the song! I am wondering now why!!! don’t you?

  • Mandella Tromp 6 years ago

    The two songs have 12 notes in a raw the same. This is called plagiarism. If the authors of the original song decide to take the case to court they will win, since according to international law only 7 notes in raw can be similar. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Musical_plagiarism

  • Fotis Konstantopoulos reporting from Greece 6 years ago

    Sergy I didn’t dislike your comment I only replied: this is the way we make our stories for 12 years now. This is the way we want oikotimes. If this makes some people not respecting us it’s their own problem. I have a website which speak the true feelings when we have a story. I am not going to make the site un-opinionated. Russian song has a big time trouble and those who think otherwise are definitely having problem accepting it. I respect your comment but I have to disagree. after all I think I have the right to have my own webspace and express the way I want. after all JUST this article happens to have at the moment more than a million visits so I rest my case here!

  • Sergy Ber 6 years ago

    It is Sergy, not Sergey. If you want people respect you, learn to respect others. I saw you didn’t take my comment as an objective and constructive critic. At the end, you only have to read all the comments, a huge majority of people thinks like me, but I have discovered me and that huge majority are wrong. Sorry to make you lose your time dear friend.

  • Fotis Konstantopoulos reporting from Greece 6 years ago

    @thea paps: yes dear, typical oikotimes 12 years now and WE LOVE IT sorry for revealing the fraud your friends most likely didn’t like that eh? hahahahaha

  • Fotis Konstantopoulos reporting from Greece 6 years ago

    Sergey you may think what you want but this is the way we want this site. Sorry mate

  • Sergy Ber 6 years ago

    How do you expect people participates in your websites if when they do it you call them “deaf”? Respect. Not me, not you, have the responsibility to say if it s a copy or not.

    For you all the songs are mediocre, boring, copies or plagiarism (except the greek song, of course, don’t know why..)… And when you repeat the same bullshit to all the songs without objective reasons, in the moment you are right, none believes you, because people is fed up reading you repeating everytime the same: “copy”, “plagiarism”, “scandal”, “boring”, “mediocre”, etc… You are losing credibility every minute with these news..

    Why don’t you just inform and let EBU says if it is a plagiarism or not? Or are you the EBU and nobody knows it? (till it is proved they copied, but it is the EBU who must say it, not you)

    Behind of all songs, no matter if you like or not, there are a lot of people working hard, and they deserve a respect, not that kind of offensive adjectives.

    If I still read this web it is because “sometimes”, it is the first to inform and “sometimes”, but not too much, the information is objective.

    I used to read this web everyday, now it is really boring because you can imagine what you will say when a song is chosen or presented.

    I hope you accept the comment and don’t take it in a personal way, because it is not my intention.

    I think verses “What If…” are very similar to verses of polish song “Pozwól żyć”

  • Thea Paps 6 years ago

    typical oikotimes BS, next

  • Fotis Konstantopoulos reporting from Greece 6 years ago

    @ Peter Russel: one question for you : if you are tired of the bullshit WHY the hell are you visiting? hahahahahahahaha

  • Fotis Konstantopoulos reporting from Greece 6 years ago

    you both are joking right? you are that deaf not to hear that it’s the same song! lol lol lol

  • Sergy Ber 6 years ago

    hahaha. every song is a plagiarism of other old song, except greek songs, of course.

  • Peter Russell (@petejrussell) 6 years ago

    It’s not even close. Honestly, I’m tired of the bullshit plagiarism claims on this website.
