Coble talks about the stunning ASCAP proposal to go after bloggers who embed YouTube videos containing ASCAP songs in their blogs.
I honestly don’t understand how setting yourself up as the enemy of people who love your art form helps you preserve and promote that art form. I just don’t. Youtube videos can be set so that they can’t be embedded. And if people are using your music without understanding copyright law, you can have Youtube strip the sound.
Suing on top of that?
Because of free publicity?
Frankly, if I were an artist and I saw that, I’d be angry because most people don’t understand about ASCAP. That stuff is going to blow back on the artist and make him look like a giant douche.
