Who's infringing on who now?

I don't know if you've heard, but there's this "rumor" going around that music producer Timbaland ripped off a song created by mod producer called Janne Suni in 2000. As I am a geek, and the demo scene lies close to my heart, I did some fast youtubing, and came up with the following:


Did Timbaland rip off Janne? You be the judge, but it sounds pretty damn close for this to be a coincidence.

It's almost like how Vanilla Ice (starts 15 seconds into the video) did (not) rip of Queen's Under Pressure (starts right away) back in the day.
MTV has a segment called "Vanilla Ice Sings His Dings", that is absolutely hillarious, but unfortunately youtube doesn't have it.

EDITED TO ADD: If you like the demo scene, and haven't yet seen it, here's one of the best demos ever created. Second Reality by Future Crew (1993)
