Genie Parody copyright laws set to come into e (14) RE: Parody copyright laws set to come into e 26 Oct 14


Yeah, Acorn, I guess so. But I do not consider a song a "parody" just because it uses new lyrics to an older melody. If you "use a song that is familiar to people to get over a point, humorous or otherwise," you have to incorporate a good deal of the lyrics to the original song (albeit often slightly modified) for it to be a parody.
