Metal Gear Solid soundtrack copyright infringement

This is not new news. Most people know that the main theme from Metal Gear Solid and it’s sequel had to be changed from Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater onwards because of it’s uncanny resemblance to this. Winter Road by Georgy Vasilevich Sviridov.

 

Yes, it’s sound very similar. But would I have known about this song if it wasn’t for playing MGS games? Probably not. I actually love Winter Road now. I listen to it often. I do not even see it as a MGS rip-off song (as I heard the MGS version first) or visa versa. It is a great piece of music. I guess people saw a opportunity to make money and took it.
