Copying Is Not Theft
from the stating-the-obvious dept
This first Minute Meme explains the obvious: copying is not theft, it's copying. We first released it with a scratch track of my feeble voice singing a capella. We invited any and all to re-record the audio and redistribute freely. Some pretty great remixes emerged; among my favorites are Taro's French version and Norman Szabo's energetic quasi-Punk rendition, with an entirely re-animated bridge. All of these remain in circulation, but Nik Phelps' bouncy, safe-for-work "party horns" arrangement is now QuestionCopyright.org's "official" release. It will be interesting to see whether it accumulates more views over time than the first scratch track version.
