July 4: Rumblefish claims to own US Navy rendition of "America the Beautiful"

Adafruit Industries has been stripped of revenues from its Youtube channel after Rumblefish — a notorious music-rights agency — claimed to own the copyright on a public domain, taxpayer-funded rendition of "America the Beautiful."

Previously, Rumblefish had sent fraudulent Youtube takedowns over birdsong, and then doubled down on the claim before finally admitting it was wrong.
