No One is Free From the Ire of the Recording Industry

Today it appears that the Ellen DeGeneres Show is going to be sued for illegally broadcasting music.  It appears that those quirky trademark dances that Ellen performs which some people, not including this author, find funny, have been performed over music that was not properly licensed.  That’s right – a national television show broadcast to millions apparently forgot to obtain licenses and permission to broadcast music. 

When asked why they did not obtain the proper licenses, one of the show’s producers allegedly replied we don’t “roll that way.”  That at least is kind of funny.  Ellen herself was not listed as a defendant in the suit.
