Skrillex Becomes Latest Musician To Be Sued For Copyright Infringement Stu October 31, 2013 Clubbing 14 Comments Share the post "Skrillex Becomes Latest Musician To Be Sued For Copyright Infringement" FacebookTwitterGoogle+PinterestStumbleUpon U.S. musician, Skrillex, has become the latest musician to be accused of copyright infringement after a lawsuit was filed against the star claiming that his track, Kill Everybody, features an unauthorized sample. Skrillex, who denies all claims of plagiariasm, joins Robin Thicke who has been taken to court for copyright infringement on two of his tracks by the family the late Marvin Gaye. The suit against Skrillex is being brought by 28 year old graphic designer, Ted Williams, from Austin, Texas who claims that Skrillex “knowingly used material that had originally been produced by the claimant” and made monetary gain by passing off that material as his own. “All the material on my albums or EPs is produced by myself, or in collaboration, or legally sampled,” claimed Skrillex. “This lawsuit is preposterous and I will be doing everything in my power to clear my name.” Mr. Williams who is also suing Sony Computer Entertainment for their use of the Skrillex track on promotional material for the videogame, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, claims that he made the sound that Skrillex illegally sampled after recording the noise of his own flatulence for 5 full minutes. “A few years ago I was afflicted with a strange intestinal problem which caused me to be constipated for 14 months,” explained Mr. Williams. “I was suffering from aches and cramps but couldn’t make a bowel movement, even with the help of strong laxatives and gentle anal fingering.” “I was so depressed because of the constipation,” recounted an upset Mr. Williams. “I tried everything to make myself pass a stool. I tried forcing really hard but almost burst a blood vessel in my face. I visited all kinds of doctors and even tried homeopathy because I was so desperate but nothing worked and I was stuck with this big ball of shit clogging my intestine.” Eventually Mr. Williams was able to undertake a revolutionary procedure that allowed him to pass the 4 kilo bowel movement while only injuring his rectal cavity “about as much as you would if you allowed a pinecone to become lodged in your anus. Perhaps in a woodland themed sex game.” “It was such a relief when I got the news about the procedure,” recounted Mr. Williams. “All I’d have to do is take some tablets that would dissolve the feces in my intestines and turn it into a gas. Because I was so relieved and in high spirits about being cured I decided to jokingly record the sound that came out of my ass when the poo was transformed into a gas. That’s the sound that Skrillex stole from me.” Dr. Paul Curtis, who treated Mr. Williams, claims that he’d never before heard someone fart so vigorously. “It was the sort of sound you’d expect a squelchy whoopee cushion the size of a small house to make. By far the strangest sound I’ve ever heard,” claimed the stunned doctor. “I didn’t expect it to go on for so long either. You could actually see the aperture of his anus billowing as the air passed through. It looked like Victoria Beckham talking.” Mr. Williams claims that he recorded the amazing 5 minute long fart and posted it to his Facebook page. “It went massively viral. I was something of a celebrity, people were calling me Fart Simpson and shaking my hand as I walked down the street. Some people even asked for signed pictures of my ass,” laughed Mr. Williams. “It was so popular that Skrillex obviously heard it online, loved it, and decided to use it on his track. But I created that sound with my own anus and if anyone should profit from it being packaged as music then it’s me.” More on this case as we have it.

Log in to ReplyReport user Adam Smith November 2, 2013 This is clearly an onion-esque written piece. The second I read flatulence I knew it was over. Whoever believes this is really dumb. Log in to ReplyReport user Johnny Sonjai November 3, 2013 I wouldn’t be surprised,I haven’t listened to him since I was 19. However,I don’t expect him to openly admit he copied someone work and tried to claim it as his own. Log in to ReplyReport user Aj Thedevourer November 4, 2013 Tell me, which music producer in the right mind would resample a fart and use it in his tracks? Seán Keys November 4, 2013 I would. And I also know a popular oldskool tune that uses farts and toilet noises.. George Greenwood November 4, 2013 I’m sorry but this is just hilarious how can this nutter be taken seriously it’s even written like a joke! “…even with the help of strong laxatives and gentle anal fingering.” Log in to ReplyReport user Mark Finocchiaro November 4, 2013 this is stupid. so can you sue my ass if someone pays me to fart and it sounds like his? case closed.
