Music hath Charms...

2009-10-22 19:53:01.364003+00 by petronius 6 comments

A number of politically active musicians have filed a FOI request with the government to discover the list of musical numbers used to torture prisoners at Gitmo. I'm not sure if they want to stop it, or if they're just afraid they're on the list. I would expect to find something by Bono on the list, to say nothing of anything by Clay Aiken...

I'm suprised the RIAA isn't doing this in order to reclaim lost royalties.

Dwayne, as long as they're not looking for additional ways to punish file sharers...

I have sources that revealed to me some of the artists on the playlist used to torture and breakdown prisoners 1) Slim Whitman 2) Captain Beefheart 3) Various Polka Melodies 4) Songs from Barney 5) And, probably the most effective,The Theme from Green Acres

I'm sure the artists are upset (who wouldn't be?), but the music is used as a tool here. Do sellers have any moral right to prevent buyers from doing what they want with their legally bought tools? I'm assuming there's no explicit terms of use agreement between the parties.
