Top be honest, I suspect that she hasn't a clue, but she needs to surround herself with more knowledgeable people and wiser counsel.
I do know she's generated more publicity for herself via this than she's had in bloody ages, even though Radiohead deny suing her, all for a song which would've escaped public notice otherwise.
Are you suggesting that this entire thing – copying someone else's song (blatantly), putting it on your new album, complaining (falsely) that you are being sued – could be a deliberate ploy to shift albums and get publicity for a new release? While I must admit it's plausible in this day and age where nothing is what it seems (hey Jimbo?), if it were true that would seem to display an extraordinary lack of confidence in the strength of Lana Del Rey's album and talent.
