Kleptones Fough The Law And The Law.....





In keeping with the mash-ups for the day [see Grey vid story], it seems the law is after the Kleptones now. Some of the websites that hosted the mp3's, even after stopping for weeks, have been hit with Cease and Desist letters from Disney. Disney owns Hollywood Records which owns the Queen catalog. Check it out here at waxy.org. The actual letter is on the site. The site also quotes:

"As far as I know, I was the first person to put the DJ Dangermouse's Grey Album on the Web. Now, I see the suppression of artistic freedom again with the Kleptones album, which has always been freely-distributable and never made a dime. It's depressing to think that our horribly broken copyright law means that nobody can legally hear this album or create others like it."

Funny how the laws that Disney are fighting are the same ones that would have put them out of business back in the day. Good ole' Walt Disney ripped off the Brothers Grimm to create his empire. Steamboat Willy was complete plagiarism. Just a thought.
