I dislike Universal Music Group.. so in the spirit
of channeling that emotion.. I'm posting
the text I received today as a result of
using used the Glenn Miller song 'In the mood'
on a home movie I shot at the falcon field
airshow last year.

Personally, I dont have a problem with their
assertion of copyright, but IMHO this is fair
use, and I'm not willing to be a mouthpiece
for UMG, so I've pulled the video, The
compromise, was to serve ads over the top
of the thing. yeah whatever..
