Not so bohemian

How’s this for copyright infringement: you are out on the town, drinking a beer or two. Or six. You end up in the back of a police car, drunk, singing Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen.

This happened to Robert Wilkinson, a 29-year old man form Alberta, Canada.

The video of the man, passionately impersonating Freddy Mercury was posted on YouTube and went viral.

The video then was removed from YouTube at the request of EMI Music Publishing, which owns the rights to the song.

Legally EMI is right of course. But practically: isn’t amazing to watch anyone sing Bohemian Rhapsody? Let alone drunk!
