I'll spell it out for you HOW DO YOU KNOW THEY DIDN'T PAY FOR IT?

If you can prove that to us then I will eat my hat.

For what it is worth music has been around since the beginning of civilization, so has cooking meat.

Yes Regaine has used a Queen song. So?

So everyone in Taiwan who uses music that is not their own original score is a rip-off merchant?

Here is an example of someone using music that isn't theirs, and if you can prove they didn't pay for the music I will eat my second hat. Original score or not, without proof your blowing hot air.

You're making massive assumptions based on the negative opinions you have built up over the years regarding Taiwanese companies, it fails to really strike a chord with me and the only chord that is being struck is yours. I disagree with you and prefer to have the benefit of the doubt as neither one of us knows if the music has been paid for (which I think it has and you think it hasn't). So please don't spell things out.

So if they pay for the music why do you think they go to the effort to subtly change the music score then?

Of course they haven't paid for it. That's the whole point of the exercise, the famous cost-down.

Again, one can not prove this isn't the case.

EDIT: if they haven't, then they're technically in trouble, could be sued and that would not be very cost effective.
