Yesterday US NEWS let us know that Mitt Romney’s campaign video featuring Barack Obama singing Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together” was taken down due to a “copyright claim by BMG Rights Management.” I thought the Romney ad was brilliant. So did the Obama re-election campaign, thus the hasty legal action.
What is very curious to me is that the video of Obama singing the same song is still available on YouTube, with no copyright infringement claim forthcoming from anyone.
What?! I wonder if Carly Rae Jepson is going to going to have copyright issues about this gem:
UPDATE 1: IMUST gave us this, just to show that EVERYONE can sing!
UPDATE 2: Before Uppity published this, I had a problem connecting to the vid on YouTube. Perhaps Google/YouTube will scrub it soon. In that event, here’s another for your viewing pleasure
