Rap artists accised of copyright infringement of "like that"

A couple of rap artists, who had a hit with a song called "Stand Up" are being accused of copyright infringement by a group called "It's Our Family".

"The specific accusation seems to be that "Stand Up" repeats many time the phrase "just like that" while the song "Straight Like That" repeats the phrase "straight like that." I guess the accusation is that "It's Our Family" owns the rights to the words "like that" at least if it is repeated enough times."

Stick with it - I had to read that three times before I stopped mixing up the group names, song titles and phrases. ;-)
