For those of you still unaware, I’m trying to spread the word about this to get as many people in the know as possible.
As you will find in the article linked to this picture, Glee has ripped off Jonathan Coulton with their newest acoustic rendition of Sir MixaLot’s “Baby Got Back” - a rendition completely identical to the one Coulton released in 2006 (you can find a side-by-side in the article) without contacting him beforehand. They even sing “Johnny C’s in trouble,” as Coulton did in 2006.
This is a disrespectful and shameful theft of intellectual property and it makes me sick - not only that they stole his idea without asking him or crediting him, but that if this song really does air in six days as is planned (which I hope to God it doesn’t), there will be thousands of people who will think that Glee came up with the idea to do an acoustic version of “Baby Got Back,” and Glee will take all the credit the Jonathan Coulton deserves.
Please, spread the word and contact FOX on Twitter, Facebook, what have you - let them know that what they’re doing is cheap and wrong.
