BMG Music takes down Romney campaign ad

http://j.mp/O3Zw5W  (Huffington)

   "Two days after President Barack Obama's campaign put out a brutal ad
    making fun of Mitt Romney's singing abilities, the Romney campaign
    responded in kind with a web video mocking Obama for singing Al
    Green's "Let's Stay Together."  However, on Monday afternoon, that
    video was no longer available. Viewers who tried to watch it were
    greeted with a fuzzy screen and the message:  This video is no longer
    available due to a copyright claim by BMG_Rights_Management."

YouTube Copyright Strike One!

No problem with Obama's ad, since that showed Romney "singing"
"America the Beautiful" (public domain!)
