Thread Name: Lord Franklin in Copyright?
Subject: RE: Lord Franklin in Copyright?
To clarify a couple of points.

You Tube are saying that someone is claiming copyright on the actual song - words and/or tune, they do not make it clear. Not the recording or, as far as I can tell, the arrangement.

The recording itself is of me singing the song and accompanying myself on ukulele - not very well which is why is was going to remove it as I feel that with a bit more work on it I can do a lot better.

What I actually sing is the words most usually found which I eventually learnt from a written source and the tune normally heard which I learnt by ear based on listening over the years to several recordings.

FWIW, here is a link to the offending video.
