Read an interesting article on Sigur Rós and the plagiarism of their songs in TV adverts here.

Same here, it seems a bit ridiculous that these companies are doing it for one song

"Sound-alikes" is a horrid practice in the world of publishing. There needs to be law (at least in the US) against it. Jens Lekman had a similar issue with the company Maytag. I think he even went as far as filing a claim and may have won.

I adore Sigur Ros so this sort of pisses me off. It's pretty stupid that companies can get away with this. If they tried to sue some of these companies they could probably win most or all of them.

Yes. And to be fair, it did make for one awesome commercial.

Regardless, some of these are definitely blatant. I mean, listening to that first Svefn-G-Englar, the Hoppipolla with the Asian family on the beach, and the Fljotavik...they're pretty damn close.

It's almost comical how close some of these are. Seems like everyone wants to make a Hoppipolla ripoff. That one with the animals is not only ripping off Hoppipolla, it's also ripping off the Planet Earth trailer. The Olsen Olsen one is pretty ridiculous too.
