The message is:
“Sorry for the break in sound – The housemates are singing”
What is it then, Simon and Garfunkel’s “The Sound of Silence”????
This is right after the warning on start up of the program that there may be adult humour and strong language … however, most of what I have seen so far is childish humour and weak english???
Well guess why we see that message – – – – – – – Yes, (I’ll assume you got it) Copyright!!!
It appears you cannot sing any song nowadays without infringing on copyright!
Apparently in the US Big Brother any singing got banned (http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=811545) and here they just switched over to sounds of birds tweeting, overhead planes and traffic. In the link above they even mention that singing ‘Happy Birthday’ is copyrighted and therefore not allowed.
I know what I am going to do at the next birthday party 🙂 As soon as they start singing it I am going to jump in and shout “STOP!!! COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT!!!” and make sure everyone’s video camera is turned off immediately until the end of the song. 🙂
