You think you've seen and heard it all, Harry Potter fan. Well, you are wrong.

You must check out this Indian version of some of the most notable songs from the Harry Potter movies. It's really something striking that makes the whole of John Williams' themes seem even more magical.

According to the video's description:

This Indian fusion covers five beautiful scores from the Harry Potter Movie Series-

A Window To The Past : Harry Potter and the Prisoners of Askaban,Harry Potter Main Theme, Hedwig's Theme : Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Face of Voldemort : Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, The Epilogue - Leaving Hogwarts : Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2

When a proud mother uploaded a short video of her baby dancing to YouTube in 2007, she probably didn't expect it to become a lightning rod for copyright law.

Stephanie Lenz's children were just jamming out to Prince, a harmless representation of proud motherhood. Universal Music Group saw it as something different — using their music without paying for the rights.

According to

The Prince song "Let's Go Crazy" was playing on a stereo in the background of the short clip. Universal Music Group sent YouTube a notice under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), claiming that the family video infringed the copyright in Prince's song. EFF sued Universal on Lenz's behalf, arguing that Universal abused the DMCA by improperly targeting a lawful fair use.

Today, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruled that copyright holders like Universal must consider fair use before trying to remove content from the Internet. It also rejected Universal's claim that a victim of takedown abuse cannot vindicate her rights if she cannot show actual monetary loss.

Basically the Ninth Circuit court told copyright holders to slow their roll with all of the cease and desist notices that have plagued YouTube videos. The opinion states reminds these hyper lawyers that there is a legal doctrine called 'fair use' which allows the usage of copyrighted material without paying for the license for things like research, teaching, news reporting and sharing a video of your cute kids dancing to a song.

TL;DR A high court told copyright lawyers to calm down.

Jack white and patrick carney spar in public spat.

Jack White has beef. At least according to Patrick Carney, drummer for The Black Keys.

In a string of since deleted tweets Carney claimed that White approached him in a bar in New York City and tried to start some sh*t.

He came to a bar in Nyc I go to a lot with a few friends and tried to fight me.

...I don't fight and don't get fighting but he was mad!!!

Three exclamation points means serious business.

There has long been rumors and disparaging things White has said about The Black Keys, suggesting that they stole the sound he pioneered with his band The White Stripes. Both bands are two pieces, both have some rockin', bluesy tunes. There's some similarities, but there's similarities with many, many bands.

It'd be slightly similar to boy bands brawling.

Things took an even spicier turn when White released a statement to Entertainment Weekly refuting the claim.

"Nobody tried to fight you, Patrick. Nobody touched you or 'bullied' you. You were asked a question you couldn't answer so you walked away. So quit whining to the Internet and speak face to face like a human being. End of story."

Carney responded with a message to Entertainment Weekly of his own:

"The bully a**holes who made me feel like nothing. Music was a collaborative and non competitive thing. So, to get macho bullsh*t from within the musical community makes me angry and sad."

Then, Carney tweeted this out a little later:

So, sleep easy, children. Those blues-ish musicians will never fight again.

To add a little more context to this terrible music spat, here's an adjustment the AV Club made to the above picture.

The cosmic ballet goes on.

Good guy Steven Tyler is at it again.

This time in Moscow, the Aerosmith frontman approached a street musician and started singing 'I Don't Want To Miss A Thing.' The song is obviously familiar to Tyler, since it was his first number one hit.

Back in 2014, the musician surprised some street musicians in Lithuania by joining them in an accordion rendition of his song 'Crazy.'

It seems like his antics in Moscow are paying off. Over 10,000 people were estimated to be at his show.

Mackelmore hasn't released a song in three years, instead choosing to take time off to probably go thrift shopping.

While he recently opened up about his experience relapsing on drugs, he saved his biggest news for Aug. 5, when he released his new single featuring none other than Ed Sheeran.

(Ed Sheeran just seems to be everywhere these days.)

Mackelmore explained the meaning behind the song and what brought him back to the studio in greater depth on his Instagram.

When you try to escape yourself, life has an interesting way of creating situations that force you to come back. To look at who you are. This is why "Growing up" felt like the right song to re-emerge with. It's where I've been the last year, through all the ups and downs. We didn't want to do a big campaign or anything over the top with this. We just wanted to put out good music, directly to the people that have been here since the beginning. Thank you for your patience. Hope you enjoy.

And if you're wondering…

Our daughter, Sloane Ava Simone Haggerty was born 2 months ago on May 29th. There is nothing like the joy and happiness that comes from bringing a baby into this universe. She has filled my heart in ways that I never knew were possible. She is the love of my life. This song is for her.

You can listen to the full single, entitled Growing Up (Sloane's Song), right here:

At first this just stinks, and then it’s music to your ears.

A comedy duo from Australia called the Shonky Brothers have turned some flatulence into a “7-tone fart symphony.”

One of the brothers named Loz, recently farted, and the two realized there was something very special about it.

When the audio is slowed down, as demonstrated in the video above, it becomes recognizable as a major seventh arpeggio in the key of B flat.

It’s “the greatest fart I ever did,” Loz writes in the video.

You can listen to the final product below, which he calls his “Magnum Anus,” and even make it your ringtone!

A security guard in Georgia recently let down his guard for a few minutes, and he’s now become somewhat of a viral sensation.

A visitor to the National Library of Parliament recorded Omar Tsereteli as he was playing the piano, and it turns out he’s really amazing.

Time for a career change?

According to the caption, he didn’t know he was being filmed, and the YouTube clip now has over 1 million views.

The seats in the room may be empty, but the world is listening Omar!

He’s performing Ludovico Einaudi’s “Giorni Dispari,” according to the UK’s Metro.
