EMI threatens cricket fans over parody songs

Nadine...what do you have to say for yourself?

Pirate sez, "Australian recording label EMI has threatened to sue Australian cricket fans for publishing parody songs based on popular pop songs at cricket matches."

EMI says The Fanatics' Ashes songbook breached copyright because it included altered lyrics to songs such as Go West by the Village People and Daydream Believer by The Monkees. The Daydream Believer parody included the lines: "Cheer up Michael Vaughan, How bad must it be, To a be a poor pommie whinger, And you're watching on TV?"
