Check out this video on YouTube: This trailer proves Negativland right - that "copyright infringement is your best entertainment value." :-)

Great news!!!  Something that rarely happens - a work of authorship will enter the public domain just as the Founding Fathers had in mind when they stuck copyright into the Constitution as a higher priority than the creation of an army or navy.  :-)  And remember - NEVER ask permission or pay to use Woody Guthrie's "This Land Is Your Land" as that too is in the public domain.  :-) 
Lawyers in a copyright lawsuit uncovered evidence that they say proves “Happy Birthday to You” should be in the public domain.

With my friends Blackie and Bob at Obama Market enjoying a 32 oz. Gatorade. Everyone is concerned for our health. Nice people on a hot day.

As usual in the race for most stupid state, the competition is tough but Georgia is excelling. The state of Georgia is claiming copyright law should prevent its citizens from reading Georgia law. http://bit.ly/1TWQhWl  Very good use of tax payers' money.   :-)

How bad is it for the Boston Red Sox? In the 1st inning in Houston, their batboy just yawned. (Yawn!?! There's no yawning in baseball!)  The adult #RedSox can hide it better. I can relate. My day was as bad as their season.

I'm a happy & content T-Mobile customer now given another opportunity to have Apple Music for free - not for 90 days, but for the remaining 90 years of my life.  But I still won't touch it (Apple Music) with a 90 foot pole. (I love my Apple Watch and shiny silver Apple things even though they are thuggish bad actors.)

Tidal hasn't been the dawn of a new age and Apple Music hasn't started a revolution either. In the words, accent & emotion of Gomer Pyle, "Surprise surprise surprise!"  http://bit.ly/1OKYidT

The People's Operator is coming to the U. S. on Tuesday. I hope this succeeds.  
Jimmy Wales is launching a social network in US on Tuesday, and it's all designed to make it easier for the everyday person to support their favorite cause.

Apple has ruined iTunes. Now comes Apple Music, a service I'm thrilled to avoid.

The Boston Red Sox are not doing this to me personally. I feel sorry for young Red Sox fans - they don't know the meaning of 86, 1986, No No Nanette, The Curse or Babe Ruth's piano submerged. They only know 2004, 2007 and 2013 - they think we win 3 World Series every 9 years.  Young Red Sox fans' skin & heart chambers are not as thick.
