Not here. I still check out the songs online, but I've lost what little interest I had in the show. I'll still watch this week's episode though.

Wife and I still watch but we fast forward thru a lot of it and just watch the singing parts. Sue's character has once again become hard to watch. I have gotten to the point where they need to dump her.

I had a very small laugh at the Carrie scene in the 2nd week of the Beatles.

Just like most shows, I batch up & watch at some point, but I'm "only" one behind on this one.

Our local news radio host sort of ripped the latest Glee episode that's dedicated to the drug addict actor.


He called it the show honoring a "junky". He went on to say it was somewhat offensive that they are honoring a junky for an hour as opposed to honoring folks who died honorably etc etc.

I can see his point...they seem to be glorifying this kid who's been on drugs for some time, hasn't really done much other than this one flash in the pan show and now he gets a nationwide audience send off. All for being a drug addict.

I still watch because I still enjoy the music. I don't enjoy the newer cast members as much as the originals.

On a side note, the guy who made the Ed Sullivan Beatle suits for the premiere episode participates on a Beatles forum that I'm on. He didn't do the Sgt Pepper costumes.

I bailed after season 1, and tried to come back this season. I couldn't make it through the episodes.

I will watch Finn's episode though, and then no more.

I stopped watching after they stole Jonathan Coulton's Baby Got Back arrangement and gave him zero credit, and then told JC that he should be grateful to them for doing so.

I'm still watching because my wife likes it, but I think the show sucks now, and has sucked for a while. I'm the first to admit that season 1 was extremely entertaining. In fact, my wife an I went to see them live that summer, and it was damn fun. Unfortunately, the show has gotten worse and worse every season since.

You mean the one he is now marketing as "In the Style of Glee" and that he violated the copyright agreement on when he did the arrangement. Okay.

Not that I am taking a side. There are two sides to everything.

Yes. That was his form of protest.

No. He paid all the royalties due to the rightsholder for his derivative work.

True, but not all sides are of equal merit.

busyba is correct. JoCo licensed "Baby Got Back" under a mechanical compulsory license, which permits rearrangements of the song, so he was OK on that end. However, he got caught unaware when he didn't realize that under a compulsory license, any rights for the song, including any rearrangements made to the song, remain with the original rights holder. Legally, Glee was safe to use JoCo's arrangement. Morally, though, one might have hoped that Glee's musical producers to at least contact JoCo to let him know that they intended to use it.

There remains an *extremely* high likelihood that they used his original performance track, one he released on the internet as a karaoke version. There, Glee was definitely in the wrong, as they would have needed to obtain a synchronization license from JoCo, which they did not. However, he opted not to pursue that (rightfully judging 20th's lawyers to be bigger and badder than his lawyers).

I believe there also was a reasonable legal argument that, given the original "song" was a rap song with no melody, technically all JoCo licensed under the compulsory license was the words. Therefore, JoCo's melody was a unique creation that he should have owned... but again, that would have required a much more protracted legal fight that he probably would have lost.

My point was I don't give a crap. The Glee people did their due diligence. He didn't. So we should protest and stamp our feet because he thought he was wronged when he wasn't? What is this, Congress?

Maybe he should also apologize to Richard Head who put the song to melody before he did.

There is a reason for laws like these. Glee did their job. Just because some "artist" didn't understand the law and got in a snit doesn't make either side "morally right" or not. Let's see. He thought he had rights to the song. He was wrong. But he pouts better. Good for him.

I don't have as much of an issue with Glee honoring Cory as I did with the Emmy awards. Regardless of how, they lost a friend. Now if the writer's really wanted to deal with "issues", they wouldn't candy coat the OD.

As any intelligent person, I researched the topic then figured out that I don't give a crap about the whining artiste.

As for the rest of your post, classic thread crapping. Thanks for participating.

Watched bits and pieces of last season based on recaps. If I liked what I heard in the recap, then I watched, otherwise just deleted the ep from my Tivo. Skipped the first two eps but watched this one live. Cried like a baby at some of the scenes between the characters, especially at the last scene with Mr. Shue.

God bless commercials, for breaking up the sad scenes with butter and automobiles, or I would have lost it. That was the most heartfelt episode I have ever seen of any show. Yes, he was a junkie, but he was their friend and co-worker, and that showed.

If what you don't give a crap about is being factually correct, that much is obvious.

If it's something else, then one has to wonder how you gave enough a crap to post your response in the first place.

A) He absolutely was wronged, regardless of whether or not the actions stood up to legal scrutiny. There's a lot more to right and wrong than merely what's written in law books.

2) Who's stamping their feet and protesting? I simply decided that I had no interest in being a patron of an artist who plagiarizes (even if in a legal manner) other artists' (JC was not the first indie artist to be treated in that way, just the one with the most fans and publicity "juice") work.
