I leave MB for a month and get Rick Rolled on the first post when I return.

I wish I'd seen it deliver the punch to the victim's daughter's face.

Ok, this happened last year, but who says news has to be new?

Prince and Universal Music have spent an obscene amount of money keeping this and 200 other harmless family home movie clips in the court system for the last 9 years.
A 29-second fuzzy video of a toddler learning to dance with 20 seconds of a Prince song playing from a speaker in the room is, according to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, a violation of copyright law.

9 years in, and Fair Use is still on the line.
