What’s the Beat? Copyright Infringement 101 (Part 2)
Here’s the 2nd part of my Copyright Infringement 101 series. This part is a little more hands-on as I’ll show some samples of songs from popular infringement cases. Enjoy.
In a perfect case of irony, Youtube sent me the following email in regards to this particular video:

Turns out it was the 2 Live Crew song “Pretty Woman” that was tagged. Luckily, they didn’t disable my audio, but you may find some random Amazon ads linking to the 2 Live Crew song for purchase on the video page. So once again, 2 Live Crew wins. Me love you long time.
