George Harrison and The Chiffons
In the case of George Harrison and The Chiffons I believe there are some obvious similarities between the songs e.g the structure, tempo and the melody. The Lyrics are quite different and in my opinion makes "My Sweet Lord" a completely different song. On a website about this case it states that the court acknowledges the fact that Harrison may have unconsciously copied the tune. So in my opinion I believe that Harrison should have won as he had no idea that he was breaching any copyright.
