    He also said this to MTV:

    A European musician Tim is familiar with is, however, is the Finnish producer who accused him of stealing a beat (see "YouTube Clip Claims Timbaland Got Furtado Track From Finnish Dude"). Timbaland called the accusation "foolish."

    "It makes me laugh," he said. "The part I don't understand, the dude is trying to act like I went to his house and took it from his computer. I don't know him from a can of paint. I'm 15 years deep. That's how you attack a king? You attack moi? Come on, man. You got to come correct. You the laughing stock. People are like, 'You can't be serious.' "

      like timbo said in the interview the beat is from a video game so how is that stealing someone else's beat?

                the original song is not from a video game, it sounds like some video game shit, but this finnish dude made it like 5 years ago. Sampling is cool but Timbo straight up stole some one else's work without asking permission or paying. I don't know, timbaland is my favorite producer but if he used my music without payin, hell yea i would be pissed.

                          think you will find those stories are true , everybody does it , even the best producers , they wont admit it tho .
                          they normally put there own thing on it......but , timbo straight up jacked that beat . its not like you can knock the guy tho, its not like it was the best beat ever made , timbo's had nothing but hits this year, its not like he jacked them all .... or did he ?:P

                            for me the biggest problem is how Timbaland handled it. See i like to formulate my opinion on people not based on shit they get into, but how they get out of it...and Timbo done fucked up big time.

                            he's like...it's not like i went to his house and took it off his computer...NO SHIT TIMBO, so hearing a beat and copying exactly is not stealing no mo?? he then goes on saying that he never met the dude, and he's from the US and that everyone is laughging at this guy and basically let his EGO take over.
                            If u ask me, im laughing at Timbo....u gotta stay real and if u fucked up, deal with it like a man, dont hide behind your big ass lawyers. pffff

                            lost respect for him

                              wtf sniper stfu stupid estonian. just cause hes finnish dont mean u gotta hop on his dick right away as soon as a european country is mentioned in the rap game. all beats are just sounds played at different intervals. i guess, with this ideology, benny benassi jacks all those beats from the 60's when he does remixes.
