I'm So Proud – My First Official Copyright Violation Notice (a single tear rolls down my cheek)

The funniest part is that I've got nothing but positive comments about my Pace montage on YouTube and I probably encouraged one or two people to seek out (and maybe even buy!) this old country tune. 

Well, I can't complain too much – Universal Music Group is progressive enough that they let the video stay up at least.  Of course, if ads start showing up on something that is at least 50% my content, I think I might have to upload another video named “Tippy Toeing by Loreta Lyn” with a whole other set of photos behind it.
