Frank Sinatra sang bad Bad Leroy Brown at Carnegie Hall on April 8, 1974. I guided the students of the St. James Charter School of New Jersey, the Chairman of The Board’s home state, having been born in my grandfather’s hometown of Hoboken.
If you look the tempo line or just the measurement up in Yahoo!, Google, Bing, etc, you will get much of what the screen shot below called “Google has to mae money so they sold out – but only a little.” These measurements and tempo maps are not in existence anywhere but on your screen. Dorky? Maybe. Useful? To some. Original?
I see that the meanspeed® music company succeeded in earning a Service Mark and Registered Trademark approved the original content, and the world ws open to challenge this for 30 days, wide open in the International Gazette: therefore original.
There is not ONE AXIOMATIC definition of tempo: hence the intellectual property laws being played here. We don’t mind your downloading the Scale or anything else on the page: just do not go around trying to sell it representing the work as yours.
That’s what the ® is used for. You’ll just have to cough the 5¢ back up. And it is not worth it (to you – to Steve Jobs, well worth it. You? I don’t know – I was thinking of an offer to songfacts.com to join forces. Any opinion on that?
