You'd need a heart of stone not to laugh..

From El Pais, writing on matters Nicaraguan:

"One of Nicaragua’s most famous singer-songwriters is engaged in a heated political battle with president Daniel Ortega and his wife Rosario Murillo over the use of his music during government ceremonies. Carlos Mejía Godoy ignited the feud when he told the president and first lady that they are not allowed to use his revolutionary lyrics or songs for their Sandinista Party rallies, warning Murillo in a letter that he will sue if the copyright of his music is violated. “Because of the dramatic context in which are people are living — once again threatened by another dictatorship family, which is no different from the sordid tyranny of the Somozas — I cannot allow my songs, which are inspired by the sacrifices of thousands of Nicaraguans, to serve as the musical background to the tragicomedy of the past few years,” the singer said in a statement.
...

Some have called for Mejía Godoy’s music to be expropriated through presidential decree...The first lady has been circumspect when asked about the dispute: “In life there are things that don’t personally belong to us; things that don’t have an owner. They cannot be considered personal property.”



I'm still chortling....
