NSF livestream “theme music”
« on: 08/13/2023 02:26 pm »
Not sure this qualifies as an “improvement” or anything, but also not really sure where else to note it.

Anyway, I’m sitting here sipping my coffee and watching CBS Sunday Morning and during a commercial break I heard some familiar music - turns out Dawn (the dishwashing liquid soap) is now running a commercial featuring the same music as NSF uses for YouTube videos.

Just wondering if (a) anyone else has noticed; and (b) now that NSF is big enough, have the Powers that Be that run the media operations considered commissioning custom some custom music instead of using a licensed piece that can also be used by someone else?

a) Yes, I have - seeing/hearing it on MSNBC, too.
b) I PM'd Chris B on it, too
c) not necessarily a big deal unless someone is using a licensed property without a license (not all ditties are licensed, some are available for public use, but I don't know the status of this one).

From "The Rhetoric of Interstellar Flight", by Paul Gilster, March 10, 2011: We’ll build a future in space one dogged step at a time, and when asked how long humanity will struggle before reaching the stars, we’ll respond, “As long as it takes.”
