“4th Time Around” by Bob Dylan from Blonde On Blonde from Ron Talley on Vimeo.
I wasn’t able to find any MP3s of “4th Time Around” to use for this post, so I ended up having to use Ron’s video on Vimeo. (Thanks, Ron!) It was the only instance of the song I could find on the Internet.
It looks like Mr. Dylan – or his record company, or his lawyers – have heavy-duty views on people reproducing his music.
To counter the trouble I may get into for airing Ron’s Vimeo video here, I can do what Ron did. He added the following text to his video:
“Copyright Disclaimer, Under Section 107 of the Copyright Act 1976, allowance is made for ‘fair use’ for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research. Fair use is a use permitted by copyright statute that might otherwise be infringing. Non-profit, educational or personal use tips the balance in favor of fair use.”
That’s very handy. I hadn’t thought of that before. Up until I saw that disclaimer, I just put music on the blog and hoped that people understood why I did it. (Hint: It’s so you can hear the music I talk about.)
