Plagiarism allegations

On November 30, 2010, independent artist AVTechNO! posted an entry on his blog expressing shock at the similarities between the first minute of KAT-TUN's track "Never×Over~「-」Is Your Part~" and his own work, "DYE", first released on February 1, 2010.[8] Videos comparing the two works have been posted on video sharing sites such as YouTube and Nico Nico Douga, and have since gathered over a million views combined.[9][10] [11]

Never×Over~「-」Is Your Part~ is credited to a panel of composers who created member solo songs that had been released in the past. The song consists of old member solo songs put together in a new arrangement.

Lyrics: Koki Tanaka, Minori

Music: Hans Johnson, t-oga, NAO, ATSUSHI, Tatsuya Ueda, King of Slick, Magnus Funemyr

Arrangement: Hans Johnson
