While ripping a few CDs to mp3, I came across this doozie in a sleeve

"This recording and artwork are protected by copyright law. Using Internet services to distribute copyrighted music, giving away illegal copies of discs or lending discs to others for them to copy is illegal and does not support those involved in making this piece of music – including the artist."

Which wouldn't be too bad[1] except for one thing: it's a John Lennon CD. Doh.

[1] Or possibly it would, depending on your stance on the whole music copyright filesharing debate. But that isn't the issue here.

He's dead, Jim.

Well, don't worry too much about it. The owner of most of John Lennon's music these days is Michael Jackson.

That's not really accurate. Jackson owns the publishing rights to the Lennon-McCartney songs (Beatles or otherwise). Lennon's estate still gets 50% royalties from the Beatles music, plus all his solo stuff.

Warning: Stocks may cause irritation to neck and wrists. Discontinue use if skin becomes abraded. Adult supervision required.
