So I am cleaning out my closet listening to Sound Opinions and they are talking about the ultimate post-modern pop song. They say it is a mash up. For old fogies like me who do not know what a mash up is, it is a bootlegged song that you record over withyour voice or that you play another song over creating a new song or “mash up.” So, they guys play and recommend a particular mash up as the ultimate post-modern pop song and then encourage listeners to go get it before Michael Jackson finds out it is out there, because his music is illegally used in the mash up. If downloading this song violates the law, aren’t they inciting illegal activity? Being married to an artist, I take the possibility of owning one’s art pretty seriously. My kids’ college may depend on being able to sell this stuff!
