Re: Sing 'Happy Birthday' and Get Fined

It seems like it would be a waste of time and money to go after people for singing the birthday song. I doubt they would end up receiving enough money in judgements to cover legal fees.

Music industry: "hey maaan, your piracy affects out bottom margins" - Statement released from their plush offices in Manhatten/LA/Washington

Music artists: "hey maaan, you're hurting us musicians!" - Said from my $30 million jet.

That gives me an idea. I am going to trademark and patent the vowels in the alphabet. So the next time any of you fuckers uses the a,e,i,o,u in a sentence, you better be ready to pay me, or learn to talk only in consonants.

What?? That's insane. What sort of situation was the song being used in to warrant that much money?

These guys are butt-fucking crazy. I wonder if I could copyright 'Amazing Grace'. Nobody really knows whom that song came from either
