Well, That's ONE Way to Get Publicity

The woman at the center of the Elliot Spitzer, aka Client 9, scandal has a Myspace page. The page is embedded with her own recording of an original composition, "What We Want".

Remarkably, but not surprisingly, the song has been played over two million (2,000,000) times and counting! [Stats as of 3/13/08 at 11:10AM] How many of those "plays" occurred in the past couple days -- since her identity was revealed?

Anyway, you CAN'T BUY PUBLICITY LIKE THAT! I wonder if she has representation?

Assuming, arguendo, that media outlets exploit/copy the sound recording, as they have the woman's pictures posted on Myspace, is this fair use?
