Back home again in Indiana

Posted by Lea on June 21, 2012

This summer I make the move from Hofstra Law School to my new academic home, the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law.

It’s a great school and I’m delighted to be joining the faculty. The move also brings us back to our home town of Indianapolis.

In honor of the move, I wanted to share with you a clip from Louis Armstrong’s rendition of “Back Home Again in Indiana.”

I was willing to pay $25 to obtain rights to share a thirty-second clip through this online licensing clearinghouse. But they wouldn’t even accept a bid lower than $4690.

I guess you’ll have to google “Armstrong Back Home Again in Indiana” and watch the infringing video on Youtube instead. The bootleg music video is much more entertaining than a 30-second audio clip anyway.

And won’t cost you $4690.
