Land Down Under, where copyright trolls will rob you blind

Greg Ham, co-writer of this song, dead at 53, the Victorian Homicide squad are investigating.

Ham was the flautist who was said to have ripped-off the flute riff from Kookaburra Sits In The Old Gum Tree, in the words of the judge a substantial part of Kookaburra losing a fortune to Sony who bought the rights to this song, and then took legal action for lost past earnings and future earnings. For 8-bars of music.

Copyright, it’s not about who creates the work, it’s about who owns it, and who can afford to buy it.

Music Monday – Wide Open Road: The Triffids

The band is named after a plant that learns to walk and communicate and wipes out humanity.

The song is about being away from your loved ones and wanting to get back to wide open road of Australia, and voted one of the most wanted songs for homesick Australians backpacking overseas.
