+ - Coke settle copyright dispute with web animator

Submitted by
Nuskrad writes "In a copyright battle that reverses the major corporation vs the little guy pattern that has become common, Coca Cola has agreed to pay compensation to veteran web animator Joel Veitch and his band, 7 seconds of love. Fans in Argentina spotted an advert with a similar animation style and music in December, and several major news channels carried the story in January gaining support for the band. You can see a comparison of the music video and the offending advert here.

Most of the compensation is being donated to charities funding research into premature births and neonatal care, with the rest paying to have the track rerecorded and released for sale."

The only problem with being a man of leisure is that you can never stop and take a rest.
