EMI threatens Aussie cricket fans over parody song book. "We're giving them out for free so it's a little bit astounding actually. We're just a supporter group, we're just trying to have a little bit of fun and so to have this action from EMI seems pretty heavy-handed."

English football fans had new words to 'Daydream Believer' for the Newcastle manager - 'Cheer up, Peter Reid...' it began. So where the hell were EMI Publishing then? They didn't even reissue Kate Bush's 'This Woman's Work' after the NSPCC used it on their TV ad for months - lazy sods.

I guess EMI relented in the end when they realized they were being douchebags after all.

But surely there's no copyright on parody lyrics? In that, if you're printing only the parody lyrics, not the OS, you can't be infringing any copyright. Amiright would be in trouble if that *were* the case, wouldn't it?

Pickle - how things change: when that Daydream Believer parody came out, it went "Cheer up Peter Reid / Oh, what can it mean / to a Sunderland supporter / to be top of the le-e-e-eague"... now look where Sunderland are.

That is certainly the case in Amercia Phil. The Supreme Court decided that in the 1960s in favor of Mad Magazine. Down under however, I have no idea if they have a more strict or loose interpretation of copyright law in the matter of parody.

The author of the parody has authorized comments, and wants YOUR feedback.
