( registration required but free and worth it in my opinion)
Don't worry it has nothing directly to do with anything we
have discussed but it is fascinating
Two points of particular note,
1 Big rights holder's are can be difficult, overbearing and very litigious
companies ( surprise)and neither
Artistic expression nor non profit use may protect from these
guys
2. Some individual STATES are passing laws that may have impact on
copyright issues

Jed I trust you will staff the barricades and take up a collection
should the artist in question get sued

PS I hope none of you think I support this kind of thing but just
a cautionary tale
