Girl Talk's Rep reps for Girl Talk

As an avowed Girl Talk hater I generally don't even like hearing people say nice things about Girl Talk, but I will concede that it's cool that Rep. Mike Doyle (D-PA) is willing to take a stand defending Greg Gillis's right to sample other musicians' works for his shallow, novelty-dependent mashup thingers. Mostly just because I'm glad there's at least one person in elected office who knows what fair use is and thinks that it's an important thing to keep around.

Interesting point by Doyle on why Girl Talk hasn't had his ass sued by every single major label ever: "Case law gets built as cases are brought to court, and I think that more case law is going to fall on his side as this becomes more mainstream."
