An article was brought to my attention today about the licensing issues involving the recordings of Dr. Martin Luther King. The person that brought it to me knows my interest in iconic celebrity licensing. However, that's not what truly caught my attention.
How many times have we heard or seen the recording of Dr. King's speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial proclaiming "I Have a Dream"? How could it possibly be a violation of intellectual property to replay parts of that speech? I'm raising money for a good cause! Don't we all have a right as Americans to use it as we see fit?
