"My first experience of the law in relation to copyright happened about 8 years ago as a classroom teacher. My class were engaged in a stop-motion animation project making a film about the myth of Daedalus and Icarus. When it came to choosing a suitable soundtrack they were adamant that they wanted to use R Kelly’s “I believe I can fly.” This prompted a discussion on the fact that the piece was copyrighted and we couldn’t use it for our film as it was going to be shown in a public film competition. The class dug their heels in so, never one for passing up the opportunity for writing with real purpose, we wrote a letter to the music publishers in our best handwriting asking for permission. The reply was short and to the point: “You can’t use it, and if you do we’ll sue you,” was the gist."
