Does it make me a bad person that I laughed at that?

The copyright system is completely ****ed up. There's no way anyone would be confused between your kids bands version and the original - and there wouldn't be any loss of sales for the artist.

The "Dancing Baby" case - a short clip of a baby dancing around to Princes Let's Go Crazy - was taken through the courts by Universal for 10 years.

Infamous 'Dancing Baby' copyright battle settled just before YouTube tot becomes a teen

but settled before the court could answer whether the DMCA takedown was justified or not .... so they keep on doing it whether there's a case for fair use or not.

I mean how ****ed up do you have to be to then issue a DMCA takedown of a crowd of fans in Minneapolis singing Purple Rain on the evening of Princes Death?
Universal Right Back At It Issuing A DMCA For A Reporter's Video Of Prince Fans Singing 'Purple Rain'
... makes my blood boil.


As for REM - REM rights are owned by SESAC. I'm not sure REM themselves can do anything more than express their displeasure?

TIL about the Gish Gallop, and Trump has mastered it

https://speakingofresearch.com/2012/09/11/gish-gallop/

Quote:
Gish Gallop is a technique, named after the creationist Duane Gish who employed it, whereby someone argues a cause by hurling as many different half-truths and no-truths into a very short space of time so that their opponent cannot hope to combat each point in real time. This leaves some points unanswered and allows the original speaker to try and claim his opponent lacks the counter-arguments.

Thom Filicia, the interior design expert from the original Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. He wasn't the flashiest or most boisterous, but after a while you realized he was the emotional glue and conscience of the show. Love Thom.

Probably not what you’d call famous, but as a game show nerd, I know that the biggest winner in the history of Tic Tac Dough was named Thom McKee.
