p2pnet news view | Music:- Stephanie Lenz’s little boy, Holden, may only be a toddler, but he’s been stealing the bread from out of Vivendi Universal’s mouth.
Vivendi is the biggest of the multi-, muilti-billion-dollar Big 4 records labels who rule the music business offline and who want to do the same online, and who claim they’re being” devastated” [their word] by all those evil copyright infringers.
Because Holden loves his Purpleness.
Or he used to.
He’d happily boing up and down to Prince’s ‘Let’s Go Crazy’ and his mum thought it’d be kind of neat to get him on a video.
But Vivendi and Prince got to hear about it and decided to do the only thing they could to protect their property.
Sue little Holden’s mum for, gasp, COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT !!!!!
And you can barely even hear the music.
Now the case is going to court this coming Friday, but Stephanie and Holden aren’t taking it lying down.
With the EFF (Electronic Frontier Foundation) on their side, they’ll be demanding that Vivendi Universal’s claim goes were deserves to go —- in the bin —- and that the company is held accountable, “for misrepresenting that her fair use violated its copyrights”.
If you’re in San Jose, or you can get there:
United States District Court, Northern District of California
Courtroom 3, 5th Floor
280 South 1st Street
San Jose, CA 95113
And stay tuned.
