EMI has lost an appeal in Australia over a 2010 Federal Court ruling that the well knwon flute rift of the Men at Work song Down Under copied a substantial part of a children’s folk song Kookaburra Sits in the Old Gum Tree. EMI are to pay Kookaburra’s composer five per cent of Down Under‘s royalties since 2002 (CBC News).
