Kim Bielenberg: Stand up please for the national anthem rap as copyright expires

Our national anthem could now be used for everything from selling soap powder to a comedy rap. It has been reported that the copyright to Amhrann na bhFiann has just expired.

Unless the government moves quickly to renew the copyright we could hear it on jingles and on mobile ringtones.

We could be hearing The Soldier’s Song when we are banging the table while we are put on hold.
