Sony claims it owns Bach?

Sony, who have been so over-the-top in terms of protecting their intellectual property that they once created a virus stealthing technology in order to do so, has done it again.

 

Musician posts a video of himself playing a piece by Bach.

 

Sony posts a takedown notice.

 

Musician posts a counter-notice, explaining that it is him playing Bach, and Bach died 300 years ago, so it's out of copyright protection.

 

Sony says they own it anyway.

 

(After a wee bit of social media pressure, Sony finally backs off.)
