I think they must have come to some agreement by now, because I heard Timba's/Nelly Furtado's version played in a shop while I was buying clothes there last week. And I do not believe it was one of Timba/Nelly's top chart songs that can be found on the internet 2 weeks before the release date, so it must have been copied from the original CD I guess...
are there any updates on the subject?

Yes, "Do It" is played again and again, it really pisses me off when I'm forced to hear it at school and people do not understand why I hate it.
However, seems like nobody in the public knows anything, see here:

My case regarding the controversy has come to its closure. Just as before, I will not answer any questions about the case.

You would be happy without credit or compensation?

...or without even knowing about that your song's been ripped until you hear it from radio and realize it's topping the charts?

No kidding, I would be PISSED.  I would publicize the crap out of it...  and, yeah, obviously seek damages and/or royalties.

Don't think that some "15 minutes of fame" (acknowledged or otherwise) makes it worth it for your art and creativity to get pillaged by someone else.  If you want to be famous, you can do it - it just requires some dedication in the long term.

There's that retarded saying, "good artists copy, great artists steal"... That is pure BS.  Great artists create from the heart and soul,  completely from within.  Whoever came up with that quote is completely misguided and frankly not remotely worthy of any recognition as a professional, ever.   Of course, it was probably coined by someone who would do anything for their 15 minutes of fame, regardless of moral/ethical sound-ness.

Yeah,  my $0.02 CDN...  ;)

Awful for so many different reasons.
