#Willard #fail

Apparently, Willard "Me, too!" Romney saw an ad he thought was effective. And so, he responded!

Sadly for him, I got to news of it a little late, I guess.

How ... perfect.

[Update] Shockingly, wingnuts are furious.

That really killed me.

The shitheels at BMG are the worst offenders in the "take our crap off YouTube" arena. I wonder if they'll ask the Prez for a public performance payment as well.

Huh. I never thought of that. I wonder what if a case could actually be made; i.e., to a lawyer, it's a public performance of a copyrighted song, by a famous person, to boot.

(As someone once observed, ridiculous is not a word in any good lawyer's vocabulary.)

M. Bouffant said...

Quite a can of worms. I think it in part depends on the venue: Night club? Cover charge? &c.

I know the Zappa Family Trust tries to collect live performance royalties for music it owns.

Yeah, the cover charge aspect gives one pause.

But I do remember hearing somewhere that every time "Happy Birthday" was sung in a public venue (e.g.), Michael Jackson or some other asshole got paid.
