Paranoid about copyright infringement

A record company forced YouTube to remove about 100 videos of the web’s most popular guitar teacher. They said that the teacher was violating copyright laws. How? He was teaching people how to play a Rolling Stones song.

WTF?

Next thing you know the RIAA will be shutting down all the music instruction places in the country for violation of copyright when they teach drummers how to play Neil Peart or guitar players how to play Van Halen.

I’ve got an idea for the music companies. Stop producing crap albums with one hit wonders. Stop price fixing and charging us 17 bucks for a CD that cost you .40 to make. Don’t get me started. They have themselves to blame, not the internet. People download music because they don’t want to buy nine shitty songs just to get one good one…
