Friday freakout

Reliable as ever, the IPKat's friends have been sending him lots of lovely things to look at - and indeed even to listen to. Tomasz Rychlicki has sent him this link to the infamous Sony/BMG End User License Agreement (EULA) as sung by a women's choir and recorded by Brian Joseph Davis.

Right: "Hallel -EULA! Hallel - EULA!"


Meanwhile, it is reported (via Miri Frankel) that Jon Bon Jovi objects to the use of the name 'Mijovi' for a coffee-based energy drink which, he says, sounds too close to his own name. Mijovi's developer Marcos Carrington says that the drink is named after his girlfriend, Jovita, and not the rock star.

Really, says the IPKat? If so, why didn't he call it Jovita? Merpel notes that Bon Jovi has also taken issue with the drink's marketing materials, which include the phrases 'itsmijovi' and 'itsmilife' which, he says, resembles the title of his hit song 'It's My Life'. The rock star's lucky, she says, that The Animals, Paul Anka, Talk Talk and Cardcaptor Sakura didn't cut up rough about him taking the title of their song. Note for historians: when The Animals recorded "It's My Life" back in 1965, Jon Bon Jovi (born John Francis Bongiovi) was just three years old.
