After I explained to the client that it is illegal to use a song by REM in their video, I receive this email:

Client:  Here’s a YouTube link to the song we want.  What format do you need the audio in?

Me: I can handle any audio format you provide me as long as you can handle the legal implications of publicly unlicensed copyrighted material.

Client: But it’s not REM!

Me: You’ll face the same issues with Madonna.
