Monster Success Until Copyright Cease and Desist Order

So this dude Kevin Ryan, gets himself an idea. He wants to sing several of Dr. Seuss's most famous poems like "Green Eggs and Ham" and "The Cat in the Hat" in a very Bob Dylan style. He arranges, plays and sings all of the material himself. He then photoshop's a Bob Dylan album cover to look like a work by Dr. Seuss. Then he buys the domain name dylanhearsawho.com and loads everything up to cyber-space. The bloggers of the cyber-universe latch onto it and it becomes a huge success. After only two short weeks, the Seuss lawyers issue a cease and desist order for copyright infringement. Mr. Ryan complies immediately. What is the point to the whole thing? Maybe people with too much time on their hands need lawyers on stand-by. Stats for Dylan Hears A Who Trending: Older & Chilly
