Chris Turner, Radiohead and Copyright

Chris Turner, Radiohead and Copyright

Don't know if anyone has seen this, it's about a week old...but it's interesting...

Basically, you can't quote a song without paying the label. Yikes. What is going on with record labels? Are they so paranoid that they can't seem to realize they are only shooting themselves in the foot? Never mind the implications in regards to discussing lyrics in print or creativity in general.

As long as you cite the source, why should it be any different than any other quote?

arghh...

That is totally nuts. WTF? I doubt this can be enforced but just the fact that it's said it's a no-no is too much!

I love it how the guy actually has MET Radiohead and Thom is a fan of his writings. That's rather hilarious.

Yeah, that's the brain-damaged "three-note" decision. Apparently the deciding judge was not a jazz fan.
