      In early November, the French group Space filed in the court the claim about protection of copyright by illegal borrowing from the work “Symphonic Space Dream”.

In a statement made on Instagram, Dobrovinsky said that Kirkorov has nothing to do with illegal borrowing, as it is only by the songs in question.

      “All who are interested in the case of the French musicians against Phillip Kirkorov. All the documents proving that Philip is irrelevant to this court can not have – in my arms. Kirkorov is not a composer, he’s performer. Indeed, if I bought pants, a style which was copied by one designer from the pattern of another designer, then why do I, the buyer, must be all your own … sorry, what?” – shared Dobrovinsky in one of his social networks.

      Dobrovinsky also referred to the document of Sony Music, which says that the album Space was released 21 Oct 2002. The lawyer said that the popular Russian singer made the song that became the subject of controversy, much earlier. “According to tradition in the West, the song does not appear in the public space before the release of the album. Philip Kirkorov sang it for the first time in November 2001 at the concert “song of the year”. Obviously, the composer Popkov already preparing on the subject of a counterclaim,” said the lawyer.
