Gaming News: "Sad Lars is Sad"
Posted: Saturday February 20th, 2021 by Woody

Listen Dammit. I can only take so much. It's been what, like 30 years since the last comic? But, when my Twitter feed blew up last night about how Metallica had been muted and copyright free music was being played over them because Twitch was afraid of getting DMCA'd... I immediately picked up my stylus and started sketching.

So here's deal:
BlizzCon is still a thing. (I know right?) And, they wrapped up the keynote of their 2021 Virtual Convention with a live, garage-style Metallica concert. Those watching Blizzard's official stream heard a performance of "For Whom the Bell Tolls". But, those watching the Twitch Gaming feed were treated to twinkly ass, random Final Fantasy town, copyright-free music because Twitch was worried about violating the DMCA. You know... the US copyright law kicked off by Metallica's lawsuit against Napster 21 years ago this April.

Result? Situation Irony retired and left the damn building.
