Imagine no possessions

The famous John Lennon song, Imagine says, “Imagine no possessions, I wonder if you can. No need for greed or hunger. A brotherhood of man. Imagine all the people, sharing all the world.”

Apparently Yoko Ono doesn’t believe all that stuff about no possessions, greed and sharing. She is suing the makers of the movie, Expelled for using a short clip of the song without her permission. The producers of Expelled claim their use is legal under the the fair use clause of copyright law.

Ben Stein commented, “Maybe instead of wasting everyone's time trying to silence a documentary she should give the song to the world for free. After all, 'imagine all the people sharing all the world …” (WND).
