"Cannabalizing" Choruses

                So the rip off of "True Believer" for Akon was blatant,  super-annoying, and now with "Your Body" chorus basically EXACT same melody/rythym as "Abracadabra" Jessie J (except it has "Whoa-oh-ohs" in between the phrases), I'm wondering is this the new standard in songwriting?  I don't mind at all when songwriters copy and paste their own stuff, but these songs are both by completely different writing teams.  Are they paying each other off or what, lol?   I hate this trend, and then so many listeners say 'Oh no, they're KINDA similar but not really the same".  With "Your Body" I was thinking "what does this remind me of"...and the answer came in about three seconds.........
