Trent Reznor Faces Song Theft Accusations
August 21 [14:00 EDT] -- Trent Reznor is reportedly coming under fire from a
musician who claims the Nine Inch Nails mastermind stole six of his songs
after the two met in an online chat room.
The Associated Press reports that Mark Nicholas Onofrio has filed a
complaint in Los Angeles federal court claiming that Reznor used five of his
songs on the 1994 album "The Downward Spiral" and claiming that one other
song, "Burn" on the "Natural Born Killers" soundtrack bares an uncanny
resemblance to another track he sent to Reznor.
Onofrio reportedly claims that he met Reznor online, asked if Reznor would
listen to some of his work, and then mailed a demo to Reznor's house.
So far, no one from the Reznor camp has commented on the claims, but we'll
keep you posted.
