Songwriters of Israeli Eurovision Winner ‘Toy’ Threatened With Plagiarism Suit

83 0


ISRAEL (CelebrityAccess) – The writers of “Toy,” the song performed by Netta Barzilai that won the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest, have been slapped with a letter from a Universal Music Group, claiming copyright infringement.

UMG alleges that the song, written by Doron Medalie and Stav Beger, shares an uncanny similarity to The White Stripes’ hit “Seven Nation Army.”

According to Eurovision rules, the winning song must be original, so if it is found that the pair plagiarized the tune, Barzilai could be disqualified and next year’s contest will not be held in Israel.
