A couple of days ago, the Obama campaign released this surprisingly effective attack ad: Mitt's dreadful singing of America The Beautiful played over stock visuals of empty factories. But Romney's counter—an ad ridiculing Obama's singing of Al Green's Let Stay Together at a campaign stop—isn't working out. Why? Because BMG, the song's intellectual proprietor, issued a copyright claim to kill it.
Romney's campaign claims that this is bullshit, because their deployment of the Obama footage is fair use. You know what? They are damned right about that.
