stonelotus: The JoCo Primer - Getting MusicThere are lots of ways to get music from me, whether you're a cyborg from the future with an iPod in your skull, or a little old granny in Idaho with nothing but an antique "CD Player." Lots of it is freely available depending on how technical you are - you can get all of it for free if you really try. But please remember I do make a living this way, so if you like what you hear I'd certainly appreciate you throwing a little payment or donation my way. If you can't afford it, for goodness sake please send copies of everything to all of your friends.sounds to me like he'd prefer if you pay but doesn't care unless he thinks he can grab some free publicity and a settlement. he strikes me less as an artist and more as a whore who will do you for free if you're broke but cry "rape" if he thinks he can get something out of it.
Krab: deadsanta: Glee even stole his name: At 2:16 you can hear the lyric "Johnny C's in trouble"./srsly wtfand at 2:40 you can hear the duck quack. It sounds like they used the karaoke track from his website.
vonschiller: I'd imagine that in the liner notes for Thing a Week it credits Sir Mix-a-Lot for the music and lyrics. Therefore, it's his song, not Coulton's. Sorry, music nerds, but your rage fails in court.
Warlordtrooper: So hes complaining that somebody used music without his permission of him using somebody elses music?
Twilight Farkle: Son of Thunder:That was beautiful. You win the thread. I bow in your general direction.I'm still having writer's block on the chorus. Try to throw in some Mix-A-Lot lines? Maybe in Latin? Or just kick off with something like this?What rhymes with infringement?Not sure if John Coulton's gonna sue...
Theaetetus: Kyosuke: Theaetetus: I wonder if Coulton has any agreements with ASCAP that Glee thinks this'd be covered under, and conversely, if Coulton has registered his copyright. This is one of those times where the willful level of statutory damages would be appropriate.He published it. There is solid proof of the date of publishing. That's all copyright law needs.... for a suit where he would then have to prove actual damages. However, if he registers his copyright, then he's able to get statutory damages (as well as attorneys fees). See 17 USC 412./don't mansplain about IP law to an IP lawyer
