Techdirt: Tom Lehrer, Still Awesome, Releases Lyrics Into The Public Domain

Techdirt: Tom Lehrer, Still Awesome, Releases Lyrics Into The Public Domain. “Back in 2014 we had a post about Tom Lehrer and copyright. As you hopefully know, Lehrer, the unassuming retired math teacher, had a brief and massively successful music career, in part because all of his work is amazing. Years back, Buzzfeed had a fantastic article about Lehrer that is worth reading. That’s what spurred my post about Lehrer and copyright, because in the Buzzfeed piece it became clear that Lehrer did not care one bit about retaining his copyrights.”
