This gorilla statue of Freddie Mercury just came out on the losing end of a lawsuit.



The pop art statue of the late Queen frontman is part of a project called "GoGoGorillas" in Norwich England and was created as fan art by Mik Richardson. The Mercury Phoenix Trust disagreed on the fan art arguement as the AIDS charity, founded in 1991 in memory of Mercury, claimed that the gorilla’s getup was still close enough to the original suit to infringe the copyright on it, which they hold.

Looking to avoid a public arguement with an AIDS charity the project managers took the statue down, but are hoping to replace it with something that would infringe on copyright laws in 10 days.

Whether you are all in on the digital age or not this speaks volumes to not only the power of streaming music on line but to fans of prog rock and more specifically fans of Pink Floyd.



It was less than a week ago that Pink Floyd said if "Wish You Were Here" would be played over a million times on Spotify they would put their entire back catelouge online for people on the streaming site to listen to whenever they'd like. It only took four days

Spotify boss Ken Parks says:

"It's a great day for fans of prog rock, but it's also a great day for younger fans who have yet to be really turned on to the magic of Floyd. That's a lot of what this is about: bringing a new generation of fans to one of the biggest and most iconic bands in the world."
