David Lowery, frontman for Camper van Beethoven and Cracker, and now copyright activist: "The bigger fight here is that if they can do this with our songs, with our lyrics, then they can do it with your Instagram photos, they can do it with your Facebook profile, they can do it with anything you put on your Web page without your permission.
