Global Warming - Ridicule

M4GW, the band, strikes again. Having produced "Hide The Decline" which struck closely enough to Michael Mann to bring threats of legal action which got the tune pulled from You Tube, they now have another:

2 Below, Honey.

This one led to threats of legal action from Van Morrison's recording company, Exile, which got it taken down as well. There's a copy at the link that doesn't belong to You Tube, so get it while it's hot, so to speak.

I would think that the use of music in parody would be acceptable, but the record companies seem to have a lot of friends in Washington so it's probably only barely legal to whistle a song as you walk down the street.

H/T to Moonbattery for this one. Always a good read.
