"Re-framed, do you think the copyright holder should give up their rights because of a single dementia patient? Would you like to give up your rights to drive your car because one person on your block is bothered by the noise?"
Giving someone the permission to use your song without violating a copyright does not:
a) Let them use it for whatever purposes they want to
b) Stop other people from having the ability to pay you for using it as well
In addition, your phrasing, "bothered by the noise", is in poor taste given the subject of the article you've commented on. Good job both missing the point completely and being such an incompassionate human being.
