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.

Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
