Submission + - Jonathan Coulton song used by "Glee" without permission (

FunPika writes: Jonathan Coulton, who is known for songs such as "Code Monkey", is claiming that his cover of "Baby Got Back" was used without permission on "Glee", a television show aired by Fox Broadcasting Company. When the "Glee" version appeared on YouTube last week, Coulton suspected that it sounded similar to his cover, and several of his fans confirmed this by analyzing the two tracks. Despite Coulton contacting Fox, they continued with airing the episode and have placed the song on sale in iTunes.
