Did Lady Gaga's "Born this way" rip-off South Korean Group Snsd's "Be Happy"?

Did Gaga copy SNSD?

Another potentially uncredited, shall we say, "influence"- in addition to Madonna's Express yourself- on Lady Gaga's Born this way has surfaced online via Youtube. Admittedly the song Be happy, by South Korean girl-group SNSD, does bare a striking similarity to the electronic backing track of Gaga's mega hit; but it could just as easily be argued that SNSD's producer ripped off Madonna's Express yourself too,hence the similarities between all three tracks.

Perhaps worryingly for Gaga, having recently heard Born this way, the producer of Be happy has decided to contact the singers' management for "further information" about the track. It's not clear what "information" he's trying to gather but it may be in anticipation of future legal action against the singer.

If he was a smart man he would be downplaying the similarities between the songs, because if Madonna does decide to come-a-knocking on Gaga's door claiming she was plagiarised, then she'd only have to follow the breadcrumbs from Gaga door back to his own home in South Korea to serve his butt too.
