Music Companies Suing 'Ellen'

The Ellen DeGeneres Show is being sued by a number of record labels, including Sony, Warner Bros., and Motown, for unauthorized use of music in a segment on the program in which the host dances to her desk. What do you think?
  • "Well, I guess we'll just have to get used to Ellen dancing to her desk to 'The Battle Hymn Of The Republic' from now on."

  • "They have to send a message to our middle-aged generation that it's not okay to steal music."

    Liz Fish Accupuncturist
  • "You can't sue people for dancing unless that dance results in murder, as per the precedent set in 1961 by Sharks v. Jets, 1961."
