NOW IT'S ROSA PARKS VERSUS OUTKAST - AGAIN: Rosa Parks has been given the right to revive her case against Outkast over their use of her name as a song title. Previously, in a lowe court, Outkast had won claiming she was an icon and saying it was freedom of speech. Um, lads? How great do you think it makes you look that you're forcing a 90 year old hero through the courts because she doesn't want you to use her name? This isn't like when Disney wouldn't let Bomb Dinseyland use their name; this is slightly different. The right thing to do would have been to have said "sorry" and changed the title of the track.
Of course, what Rosa should have done was go and sit down on Outkast's tourbus until they did they right thing.
