AndyAce83´s Let´s Play – Episode 06: BioShock 2 Multiplayer – “I Have No Dime For You”

21 Jul

Copyright… Sometimes it seems copy-wrong. I made a video featuring Bing Crosby singing a song from about 1931 called “Brother, can you spare a dime?“. Of course some people got the rights to that song soo… That means I have none. I got this message:

Press the image to get it larger.

I disputed on fair use since I: 1) Did not use the entire song, 2) The song is old, 3) The song is a reference to the game, 4) its non commercial.

If you can watch this video then it worked. If not… Some guys just “owns the rights” to a song, written 82 years ago and song by a guy who died 36 years ago.

Now I am not a socialist so I am all for copyright! People should be able to own their own work, but there has to be reasonable limits. Using a song that is 82 years old, must be okay. Especially when it isnt being used in its entirety and the guy who sang it is long dead. The only people who make money of this is guys who buy and re-buy copyrights. In other words A$$HOLES! Copyright, yes. Copywrong, NO!

I also love the irony of the theme of the song and how some people will not “spare me a dime“.
