Now plenty of musicians have sounded off on why they've considered this verdict to be a disaster and Wenatchee The Hatchet is reading a bunch of musicology stuff this year.  It may be interesting to see contrasting threads of thought in the "Blurred Lines" case and associated verdict with another realm of mass published content where a year of controversy led to no litigation of any kind and quite behind-the-scenes en masse revision of already published works.  You don't have to guess which controversy is being referenced there, do you?
