Watch out on copyright
in a while, everyone should write a three line poem with each line
being the title of a song =P Although, how would that affect the
copyright? I guess you'd need permission from each songwriter? I know in
collage art that any piece of art that gets incorporated requires the
permission of the original artist, and in music even a few notes strung
together can be the subject of a million dollar lawsuit...
Therefore, I will not post my three line poem with titles from Bowie/Queen, Pat Benatar and Sting, just in case
I was really surprised by this story http://pubrants.blogspot.com/2012/07/blogging-authors-beware-you-can-get.html
Since Roni Loren took down the picture right away, did not claim it as her own, and did not seek to profit from it, I was quite surprised that she was still liable for money.
So, yeah. Best not post anything made of song titles =P
