Not another wedding music thread -- but please read on...

I was listening to my radio the other day (sometime during this past week) when a small feed called "Lazlow" and the "underground hard drive" aired something that really got my attention.

"Lazlow" was referring to a story where someone did an article on being able to insert the "Happy Birthday" song in their video and distribute it to friends and family. He pointed out the same legal issues of copyright as has been hashed through these threads time and time again. Basically the article said that because the "Happy Birthday" song is copyrighted, the people who did the video would have to shell out $800 in order to use the song.

Finally "Lazlow" gave comments that said that something should be done (to the laws and/or copyright protections) so that people could not only use the music, but also be fair to the artist and production company.

I thought: "wow - the issue is starting to seep over into the mainstream" and with the advent of people doing their own videos - they are going to want to synch up their music - only to be *almost* in the same position as most of us are (yes, I realize they would be synching for free, while most of us charge, etc...) But I was glad to see/hear that it's starting. Not sure anything will really come of it soon, but at least it's a start.

I have done multiple searches on "Lazlow's" site -- along with several google searches in attempt to find the article. To date, I have not found anything yet. I thought he said it was from PCMagazine - but I could absolutely be wrong on that.

Anyhow - thought I would pass this along,
-Michael

Finally!!

I was able to find both references to the online article and the audio program I had heard a few weeks back. Not that there is anything new here that hasn't been discussed and dissected in great detail already -- the fact that it's even being REPORTED is at least a good step.

The link to the LAZLOW program is here:

The link to the Wired Magazine referenced in LAZLOW's program is here:

It's a good read at the frustration level at the core of the copyright and use debate.

Regards,
-Michael
