Many thanks again to Tanya for highlighting This Charming Charlie
- a simply wonderful little Tumblr, and a poke in the eye of the corporate giants (Universal Music) after a takedown notice was rescinded following Mozzer's note of support. The premise is a simple one, Lauren LoPrete has created a mash-up of Charles Shulz's Peanuts comic strip, featuring Charlie brown and Snoopy, with lyrics from The Smiths (something of a favourite band of my youth - I was perhaps the not-so-proud owner of a fairly unique yellow Meat is Murder t-shirt after my mother washed it with a duster...). Arguments of fair use abound, and LoPrete has handily included her legal documentation on the Tumblr too.
