Eric Prydz sues over 1000 EDM artists in World's Largest Ever Copyright Lawsuit over 'Pryda Snare' sample






Pryda Recordings & Infamous PR today confirmed reports today of a $15m court case that has sent shockwaves through the world of electronic music & could cost some of EDM's top producers several million dollars.

It is thought that at least 50% of EDM & electro-house releases since 2012 could be involved in the law suit, which covers over 35,000 tracks identified to have sampled the so-called 'pryda snare' - featured on Eric Prydz' hit 'Miami to Atlanta'.

North American artists who have sampled the recognisable 'big room' snare drum sound are receiving official letters from lawyers Ziffran Brittenham based in LA (where Prydz relocated last year), while those in Europe will be part of a second legal action from Danowsky & Partners of Stockholm.

Prydz is seeking shares of songwriting royalties, publishing and damages in some cases, plus sample clearance agreements with the labels involved. In some cases, such as Martin Garrix, Dimitry Vegas, Aviicii & Tiesto damages & backdated royalties are expected reach up to $500,000 per track.

  4. I understand this is a distinct snare. But what starts as a lawsuit for a snare today, could become lawsuits for presets tomorrow. Then chord progressions. This is kind of a dick move. Shouldn't he be flattered a sub genre was built on that sound?

    1. It's not a real news story...

    2. I agree if this is real like what would be the difference of people using the same chord progressions in songs most of the biggest classic hits of rock and roll are all the same chords with a few varied differences..

      Delete
    3. But it's already established that chord progressions, titles (as in song titles), scales, orchestrations (i.e., combination of instruments) cannot have a copyright. But a recording, otherwise known as a master, can. Melodies can also have a copyright. In other words, I own my recording of my snare and you cannot use it without my permission. What's so bad about that?

    4. Are you saying that two or more people can not come up with a same idea and that it is fair and just for the person who came up with it "first" to prevent other from using their own ideas? Do you claim to own other people's brains and computers?

  7. a snare can make or break a song. i think the hardest part of engineering a good EDM song is creating both the BD & snare.

    1. Totally agree with this. I also agree with the above comment from x xenocide, which is that he must have sampled another snare to create his snare. If snares were considered intellectual copyright, alot of drummers would make bank.

  13. Id get whats m7n but this guy is aking for 17.5 trillion dollars in compensation. Lets slow it down fpr a sec. Over a snare?

  14. This guy ever use the amen break...... Any artist that uses the amen break (ever) should stfu..... If he nicked me playing funky bagpipes, yeah, I'd sue him silly but a snare hit??? As a Logic user myself, I'm working on the assumption that everyone at some point will use the amen break in some capacity so unless he messages me and points out otherwise, hypocrite regardless of whether royalties are due or not.

  20. Ok people, if you click the soundcloud link, that is a picture of pryda - Miami to Atlanta, it goes to Jon B mix. If you click "more on this story" it takes you to the same, with jokes "not a prydz snare in sight!"

    Obviously the story is a joke, and a quote good one! Those two blokes are probably buddies and having a good laugh.

  25. I still can't believe that there are people out there dying of hart-break or scammed by other spell casters when you have Dr.Ogudugu in this world why leaving Dr.Ogudugu for another and why still languishing in loneliness because your lover left you. There is only one solution to your problem which is Dr.Ogudugu whose details is(GREATOGUDUGU@GMAIL.COM). Because in my own situation he did a very great job for me by bring back my ex lover without wasting time and since then my relationship has been perfect and protected by his great power. So better contact him now at (GREATOGUDUGU@GMAIL.COM),because that problem you are keeping is killing you slowly.
