Billboard: 'The Legal Issues Behind The Slowed-Down Justin Bieber Track'

My Billboard piece on super-slow Justin Bieber. Bottom line: his label says it's fine ("and Justin thinks it’s great"!). EMI, one of the publishers, declines to comment.

  1. as these mash-ups and remixes become more common on the internet i wonder if there isn't a generational component here as well. I'm sure if he took any action against this it would severely alienate his fan base.


Comments here are moderated. I appreciate substantive comments, whether or not they agree with what I've written. Stay on topic, and be civil. Comments that contain name-calling, personal attacks, or the like will be rejected. If you want to rant about how evil the RIAA and MPAA are, and how entertainment companies' employees and attorneys are bad people, there are plenty of other places for you to go.
