Don’t download this song.

No sooner do I mention Weird Al Yankovic than he releases a new song – Don’t Download This Song – a humorous jab at the RIAA and their attempt to criminalize the sharing of music.

If only there was some for of micropayment so that you could pay the artist directly for their music and cut out the record companies.

You can also get his parody of James Blunt’s song You’re Beautiful, entitled You’re Pitiful, here. Unfortunately Atlantic Records, Blunt’s record company, isn’t going to let Weird Al put the song on an album. Fortuntately thanks to the internet you can at least download it.

Tip of the hat to Digital Copyright Canada.
