McCartney, Ulrich, say No! to copyrights

A coalition of high-profile rock stars say they’re turning their works loose online so people everywhere can enjoy their music without fear.

The group, called Rockstars ‘R US, includes Paul McCartney, Cliff Richard, Yoko Ono, Barry Gibb, Petula Clark, Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich, and singing US senator Orrin ‘Terminator’ Hatch (far right).

“I already have so much money I’ll never be able to spend it in a million years,” says Gibb.

“Why would I want more?”

Music lovers around the world, “will now be able to share out music with each other without worrying they’ll be sued,” says Clark.

They’re among 4,500 artists who recently celebrated a “major victory” when a European Parliament committee sanctioned plans to boost copyrights to 95 years.

“I’m absolutely fed up with singing Living Doll but I have sung it constantly since 1959 because every time I sing it live it generates sales of the original record and royalties to me,” said Richard.

“But it’s about to fall into the public domain anyway, and I made enough money out of it to buy three Rolls-Royces and a chateau in France,” he said of his change of heart.  “So why worry?”  -

Declared Yoko Ono, “We’re hoping this will encourage other super stars who’ve become multi-millionaires from copyright royalties to follow our example.”

“Enough is enough,” says Ulrich. “I have a lot to answer for and this may help. It’s time to thank all those fans who made us rich.”

Won’t legacy copyright holders Vivendi Universal (France), Sony (Japan), EMI (Britain), and Warner Music (US) object? - Rockstars ‘R US spokesman Hatch was asked.

“It’s time to terminate them,” he joked.

“They can sue us if they don’t like it.

“Let’s see how they cope with people who can afford a proper legal defence instead of helpless grandmothers and 12-year-old children.”

lmao yoko ono what is she to the music world anyways but someone that latched on to a john lennon and most likely was one of the factors of the Beatles ending not to mention that led zeppelin was emerging as the new powerhouse band outselling Beatles in record sales
