Israel - Music - #1855 - Inevitable: YouTube Pulls "We Con the World" Video - Update: Video Rehosted - Hot Air

"We Con the World" - Video -  - Hot Air - What happens when a song parody skewering a politically-correct target reaches viral stage on YouTube? Caroline Glick gives us the answer:As Israel went offline for the Jewish sabbath, YouTube removed most versions of Latma’s hit parody song We Con the World. If you try to access the song on YouTube you receive the notification: This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Warner/ Chappell Music, Inc.Copyright experts we advised with before posting the song told us in no uncertain terms that we were within our rights to use the song because we did so in accordance with the Fair Use Doctrine. The Fair Use Doctrine, copied and pasted below from the US Copyright Office stipulates that it is legal and permissible to use copyrighted material under the fair use doctrine for purposes of parody.
