Internet folk musician Jonathan Coulton isn't sitting idly by following Glee's liberal, uncredited reproduction of his famous "Baby Got Back" cover. The musician has limited legal options — there's no legal recourse for a cover that sounds exactly like yours — but he's resorting to other means to make a point; he's re-released the cover on iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon, and says that proceeds from all re-released track sales between now and the end of February will go to the VH1 Save the Music Foundation and the It Gets Better Project (after, of course, paying iTunes fees and royalties to Sir Mix-a-Lot). In a blog post, Coulton writes that the new (old) track is "a cover of Glee's cover of Sir Mix-a-Lot's song, which is to say it's exactly the same as my original version."
