Plagiarism

After hearing "Baby's One Do" and noticing how similar it sounded to "Fools Gold" by the Stone Roses and hearing how a Duran Duran riff was lifted for "Dada" I decided to look into this a bit more. I read on 2chan that at some point they just started copying 90s western alternative songs and never cited the originals, a good example of this is "Looser Sugar" which is pretty much a straight cover of "Sugarcube" by Yo La Tengo, also a number of Asaki-era Guniw songs resemble the band Curve to an uncanny degree. I was wondering if you guys were aware of this and if any of you actually own the CDs could you check the credits for these songs and see if the original artists are ever cited?
