Joe Jonas Stole Shots For Music Video?

comparison


According to The Wrap Joe Jonas may have committed plagiarism. Joe Jonas’s new video ‘Just In Love’ is so similar to the low-budget indie drama ‘For Lovers Only’ that fans are furious. The writer said: ‘It’s very disheartening..

..that a fellow director would go to those lengths to copy ‘For Lovers Only’ and not credit us. If they had said our film was their inspiration, we would have been flattered. But nowhere in any of their materials..

..do they say that we were an influence on them, which is upsetting to us as artists. And it makes this feel like plagiarism.’ Kevin Jonas Sr., the manager of Joe Jonas, did not respond to messages left at his office.

Watch the videos under. Do YOU think Joe is guilty of plagiarism?

    And even when it is plagiarized it’s not Joe’s fault, but his director. So you all shut up about Joe doing wrong… Btw.. Demi sings a song that’s like totally the same as an other but it’s okay.. so many video’s look like another.. god people always have to do stupid.

    but if you want to complain, it’s the director’s fault, not Joe’s

    I love Joe, but don’t bring Demi into this just to make joe look better… for one demi bought the rights to thats song(that has different lyrics BTW),and credited the writer so actually it is HER song… also she probably never even knew about the other song considering its in another language.(blame the Background music producer not demi)

    Joe didn’t buy the rights to the video, or credit them so it is plagiarized, but in all fairness he probably didn’t even know, so blame the director not Joe.

    they don’t even blame Joe so you shouldn’t either

    Every French New Wave film has had the same look for the past 50 years, so everyone should just sue each other! Here’s the full article:

    Can’t be a tribute to that film? There’re a lot of musical videos simulating a film. But the way, is the director who makes the video.

  • LondonFoolishly

    at the end of the day, both video’s are about loving someone, and when your in love you tend to hold hands, kiss, get frisky, you know? So I wouldn’t consider it as copying as you cannot show love in any other way.
    However, I do agree, if the ‘just in love’ video has been copying from the other video, it’s not Joe’s fault, it is the directors.

    omg he’s so gulty!!! omg no one can do that joe jonas you’re a criminal…

  • blabla

    oh yeah because those scenes are SOOOO unique -.-

  • BrokenArrow

    Nothing is original anymore… *sigh*

  • Desires

    JOE JONAS SUCKS! HE’S FUCKING BITCH..

  • Chelsea-Rose

    It does seem to be very similar, but both videos are guilty of being generic, cheesy romantic videos. Nothing interesting in either.

    um… last time I checked Joe wasn’t a female Dog.

  • Jinxx.

    lol oh god. I had some lady attack me on twitter over this.
    she was all like “JOE JONAS NEEDS TO APOLOGIZE! PLAGIARISM!”

    girl has never heard of inspiration.
    and like many of you have commented already, it wouldn’t be Joe’s fault.
    it’s the director.

    LMFAO :’) crazy bitch. I hate that Joe haters grasp onto anything to just attack him with, smh. What’s yo twitter? :)

  • OhMy…

    No, OU. I dont think Joe is guilt of plagiarism.

  • Grease

    come on so what if like 4 scenes are similar that doesn’t mean that he stole shots for his music video joe probably knows nothing about this

  • JJlover

    theres no many original things right now,but I don’t think Joe stole nothing here.

  • Grease

    doesn’t this remind you of selenas video clip who says or is it just me?

    Then this director needs to apologize to Jean-Luc Godard for stealing his entire film from Godard’s whole body of work! Everything in there was already done in Breathless and My Life to Live. It’s called going to film school and paying homage to your inspirations.

  • Gearsarealwaysturning

    It is not joes fault. He probably didnt even know that movie. lol. Lazy ass director!

  • JoeHoe15

    Joe’s has nothing to do with it.

  • StephaniaJonas

    So if i have sex with my boyfriend in the shower I’m guilty of plagiarism? i don’t think so. All they want is publicity.

    LOL!!!!! And i know a million videos that are similar to each other it doesnt mean it was stolen or it was plagiarized. People will do anything for attention

  • Ijustneedyounow

    okay the pictures do look very simular but i didn’t see like any of those scenes in the video?

  • iamruth

    the pictures do look similar but i seen plenty of photos and films that are similar,and they cant all be plagerism otherwise we have no new music films or tv.art cant really be stolen.

  • Kat84

    It’s hard to see the similarities between the two if you’ve never seen For Lovers Only. For those who have doubts, watch this video and see the comparison for yourself: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TumcuDr_jGo&feature=channel_video_title
    There are too many parallels, Just In Love contains max. 3 original shots, the rest of them are all taken from the movie. Of course each of those scenes alone can be probably seen in other romantic movie but the way of capturing them, the way they follow the storyline and mainly the amount of the same scenes is what’s clearly makes this video just a copy of the movie.

  • Heello

    Joe didn’t think you could go so low.

  • angelaaaaaa

    i dont think JOE JONAS plagerized.. but the director of the music video would have

  • diamondsinthesky

    Okay, let’s not be naive. The similarities are INSANE. Nothing is original in film these days but this is just too similar. So plagiarized it’s ridiculous.

  • NeleeeV

    And even when it is plagiarized it’s not Joe’s fault, but his director. So you all shut up about Joe doing wrong… Btw.. Demi sings a song that’s like totally the same as an other but it’s okay.. so many video’s look like another.. god people always have to do stupid.
