Submission + - The legal realities of Fox's Glee (blogspot.com)

DeeFresh writes: Christina Mulligan has written an article for the blog Balkinization discussing the legal troubles a real life version of Fox's Glee would encounter. From the article:

"In one recent episode, the AV Club helps cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester film a near-exact copy of Madonna’s Vogue music video (the real-life fine for copying Madonna’s original? up to $150,000). Just a few episodes later, a video of Sue dancing to Olivia Newton-John’s 1981 hit Physical is posted online (damages for recording the entirety of Physical on Sue’s camcorder: up to $300,000)."

In today's world, is it possible for a glee club to exist without violating some sort of copyright law?
