The Insanity of Copyright

Corporate copyright, that is. It is giant, multinational capitalist corporations who (well, they are "persons" aren't they?) primarily benefit from the insane extended-to-eternity intellectual "property" laws, not consumers or even artists.

It’s not really surprising at all: today Beyonce’s official YouTube channel is blocked in the US due to a copyright infringement issue with her own record label, Sony. Below a banner that reads “Congratulations for winning six Grammy Awards” – presumably from Sony, the video for “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)” has been replaced by this notice: “This video contains content from Sony Music Entertainment, who has blocked it in your country on copyright grounds.”

Of Course! Beyonce's Record Company Puts a Ring On Her YouTube Channel
