The Cigar Wrappers "Illegal Immgrant Song"

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if there is a way to alert the remaining members about this completely unauthorized use of "Immigrant Song" ?

This one really irked me because of the totally partisan lyrics - my guess is that the remaining members don't really want this song to be associated with something like this....

This thread will undoubtedly be pulled or locked because of the overtly political nature of the topic. That said, the song was reworked and then released under the Fair Use Doctrine.

I'm not familiar with your reference Zep Head - please provide a link or something so I can be enlightened...

Robert Plant is essentially pro-refugee and pro-immigration. We can agree to disagree.

Yep, it's ridiculous that this stupid video exists, but as long as they state that it's a parody with some form of overview, it's legal. That's how shows like Family Guy and South Park get away with some of their gags with otherwise copyrighted material.

Yep, parodies are beyond reproach as I understand it...like Weird Al. I guess Zep can sue if they really want to.
