Stay With Me - English version of “Tbiliso” or Copyright Infringement?

The Song “Stay with Me” performed by a famous British jazz singer Gery Scott from the album released in 1962, sounds precisely the same as Revaz Lagidze’s “Tbiliso”. The fact became known from the “popmusic” music portal.

This issue was discussed at the Imedi TV show “Imedis Dge”.

The song was written by Revaz Laghidze in 1958 in dedication of celebration of 1500th jubilee of Tbilisi, while Gery Scott visited USSR in 1961 and Georgia among other countries.

As the daughter of Revaz Laghidze states, she was aware about this song but during the soviet period it was broadcasted as an English version of “Tbiliso”.

The clarification of the legal issues for Laghidze’s heirs is undertaken by GMI Rights Management.
