Default C'mon Sony are you that afraid of Halo?

I'm not certain why Sony has such a hard on for this... i'm assuming they publish Neil Diamonds music?

Anyway this just went from dumb to desperate looking on Sony's part:

Not only do they parody the song, but they don't use the lyrics nor the original sound... and yet sony is going after them.

Imagine being THE top dog only to wake up one day, realize you got lazy, greedy and arrogant......and nobody gives a shit about you anymore.

You have a limited amount of time to defend your copyright once you realize it's being violated. If Neil Diamond wants to protect his property, I'm not sure how that makes the Sony corporation desperate.

If anything, Sony BMG initiated the lawsuit. Not Kaz Hirai and his band of ninjas.

That'd be a Beatles song.
