I'm listening to the John Anthology and it struck me that Jealous Guy is pretty similar to Child Of Nature. I checked and sure enough they are very similar. I guess he couldn't sue himself for copyright infringement, but maybe apple01 could have...

Half of what I say is meaningless...

'Jealous Guy' is 'Child Of Nature' except John rewrote the lyrics before it appeared on the 'Imagine' album. And it hadn't been released before that point so even if possible (which it isnt - actually there probably are thousands of examples where it did happen) then there was no charge anyway.
