Harris: 'No Legal Action Against Brown'

CALVIN HARRIS has dismissed rumours he is planning to take legal action against CHRIS BROWN for allegedly sampling one of his songs without permission - insisting a lawsuit wouldn't do any "good".
The Scottish DJ took to his Twitter.com page this week (beg27Sep10) to rant about the singer's new track, Yeah 3x, revealing he almost "choked on (his) cornflakes" when he heard the alleged similarities to his own song, I'm Not Alone.
But although Harris is adamant that "stealing is stealing, doesn't matter who you are", he won't be taking his complaint to court as he doesn't want to become tangled in years of expensive litigation.
In a series of posts on his Twitter blog, he writes, "Stealing is still stealing, doesn't matter who you are! Because Chris Brown is an international celebrity doesn't make it OK to rip off a guy from U.K. not many people have heard of... How are you going to call me irrelevant when his brand new song sounds just like my two-year-old song?
"Of course I'm not going to take it to court? What good would that do?! Happy for people to make their own mind up... And those saying I'm doing this for publicity, that's f**king laughable - what I have I got coming out? F**k all! Don't want or need it."

All this finger pointing and negativity is down right cruel and ugly and shows how many followers (negative people who can't think for themselves and go by what they read) are out there. We are in dire need of leaders and your article as well as other negative articles are causing bad energy in this world. Give credit where it's due and you know darn well Chris Brown has been through a hell of alot just like you and I have. Give him a break already. I can't say how dissappointed I am with you and society. So much for praying for world peace when I have to live surrounded by individuals like you and the ones you poison.... It's pretty scary and does not have to be this way. Negativity causes more hate. A little positive attitude goes a very long way too. Much love to us all. We need it because we're all burning due to lack of our own leadership! Chris Brown is really a good kid. I truly stand on his side. Chris Brown should sue Calvin for defamation of character!
