Stickman News - Eurosong winner accused of plagiarismIf you live in US, chances are you didn't watch this year's Eurosong held in Austria. The winner of Eurovision 2015 comes from Sweden, the name of the song is 'Heroes' and his name is Mans Zelmerlow. This would normally not be interesting to us, except one little thing. Background video played during his performance contained potentially 'copyrighted' figure of stickman. We all know that you cannot protect stickman figure in general, but the resemblance to the one from “The Alchemy of Light” is more than coincidental, wouldn't you agree?
Anyway, obviously our stick figure is a victim of #eurosongplagiarism
Let's take a look.
