Ruling expected next week in Malmstedt vs. Gessle court case

Written by Jud on October 18, 2002 to .

LONDON - It’s now a period of anxious waiting for Stephan Malmsted and Per Gessle. Closing arguments were heard yesterday in the “stolen record” case. A decision from the judge is expected next week.

  If Malmstedt were to win, he could receive a very large monetary award and it would place into jeopardy the further release of any Roxette album that contains “Sleeping in My Car.”

  Malmstad appeared quite satisfied after his closing comments in which he again claimed that the Roxette hit is a copy of his song “Jenny and I”.

  But Per says he is not worried.

  Manager Marie Dimberg says “We guess that the decision of the judge will go according to what is the truth – that Per never heard that demo. Music experts have testified that the there isn’t any likeness.”

  After four days in the High Court of Justice, it is expect that the judge will take Roxette’s side, writes Expressen.


Hopefully justice shall prevail. It obviously has before, and will continue to do so.

Justice will prevail...

...don’t lose sleep over this one Per. The British High Court will see you ok :)

Per must win!!! NOBODY get him many...

and where can we listen to Jenny and I?

there is absolutely no similarity between the two songs! this is bullshit

Where can I download this “Jenny and Marmalad” thingy??


Malmstedt should wash his ears.
Maybe he doesn’t hear good enough...

My grandfather taught me something years ago, before he passed away:

NEVER bet on a sure thing. Especially when other people are involved. WE might believe that Mr. Gessle didn’t copy the song, but who’s to say that a judge won’t say that he did. While, I think that the songs are different, that doesn’t mean that this judge will agree. I’ve seen enough in my life to know that what’s always obvious, isn’t what’s always decided.

And, if anyone wants to know what I’m referring to, email me and I’ll tell you.

Te confundes al pensar eso porque cuando tú registras una canción no registras los arreglos que luego se hacen, si no la versión demo e incluso en muchas ocasiones simplemente una hoja con los acordes, la música de la melodía escrita y la letra. Y los acordes y la melodía del estribillo de Jenny and I son en realidad muy parecidos a los de Sleeping in my car.
