There are 8 lines, and 24 seconds that sounds similar, and with the repetition, the total length of the song that sounds similar is up to 1 min. But SonyATV did not say anything about Mariah Carey’s song plagiarising 2NE1’s song.”

He also added, “Even though this is embarrassing but the composers to ‘I Don’t Care’ and even myself have not listen to the music produced by SonyATV.” refuting accusations for plagiarism.

And with the issue of plagiarism brought up by SonyATV has caused hurt and loss of pride by the 2 which will not be easy recovered, and had put YG Ent in public opinion.”

    ^YG is not interested in sueing mariah carey, he's basically using it as an example to show how biased Sony ATV is, gosh learn how to read. And there hasn't been a statement from the original composers yet so why are acting like your opinion is a fact.
