BMG Music agrees the Chinese Communist Party isn't worth a few cents on YouTube

If you hadn't seen our lurking about these last few months, we are a band that is doing a parody art project by taking Chinese Communist Party propaganda songs and transforming them into Catholic anthems.  Under Chinese law, none of the tracks we've redeemed are copyrighted but, believe it or not, some have rights reserved in the USA.  We haven't had any issues save for one so far.  And unfortunately it hit us on our first release thus slowing our rollout.  The good news, however, is that after more than one attempt, more than one video on the same song, and more than one communication with BMG music (the copyright holder to a song called "No Communist Party, No New China"), we now have agreement that our rendition with accompanying lyric video is fair use parody and BMG has removed their copyright claim.  

This small victory is just a taste of the ultimate victory the Church will be given over all forms of evil.  While the Chinese Communist Party has prevented or terminated 400 million pregnancies since 1980, the Catholic Church's completely pro-human policies have encouraged a flourishing world.  While the Chinese Communist Party has elevated monsters to power that have destroyed people's rights, the Catholic Church elevates Christ from whom all true freedom comes.  While the Chinese Communist Party's ultimate goal is continuity of their own power, the Catholic Church relies on and grows from the one whom all power comes from.  

Please pray for the Chinese people and their leadership.  (And please be generous with your ears by listening to our songs when you're needing a boost.)

Hooray for Victory Captain Hogcurl!

Keep the hits a coming! Streaming your tunes as I type.

Thank you!

That comment sure made me feel good.  I'm trying to be more Spotify-intensive which I think is where you have your emphasis as both a listener and an artist, if I'm guessing correctly.  I don't really understand it so I signed up as a listener to figure it out.  I like it more than the free version of YouTube music I had previously used, it provides more variety.  

Elevate Christ
