The song chosen (Gimme Shelter – The Rolling Stones (1969) must relate to one of the topics organizing a week’s readings in this course, but must not have been assigned in this course. The chosen song must also have sufficient political context to make it useable for this assignment. You must attach the lyrics of the song as an appendix to your essay.
In your essay, you will (1) provide your own interpretation of the meaning of the song’s lyrics; (2) clearly explain how the song is political and how it relates to the theme that you have selected; (3) choose two readings from the syllabus and explain how the song relates to those readings (is the song an example of what an author discusses); and finally (4) provide a critical review of the song that explains how it works to question, support, or comment on a political issue. Ultimately, what was the political point of the song?
Use any standard citation method that you are familiar with (MLA or Chicago). If you are unfamiliar with any, I have included a cheat sheet for the APSA version. This paper will be turned in via blackboard which will utilize plagiarism detection software.
Below is the theme the paper supposed to be written on which is Vietnam Protest/Political music. Attached are the files from the lesson as well as the music and video from the lesson that will be incorporated into the paper.
Although not directly about protest music, you will see how often political music plays a part in the Vietnam Era protests that spread throughout the country. What differences do you notice between the Vietnam protest music and the Civil Rights protest music? What do the differences mean to the different social movements?
The readings focus on a shift to rock n roll, as well as shifting societal norms between more traditional music for an older generation and the rock music of a younger generation. Pay close attention to the Gilmore article in Rolling Stone and the Lynskey chapter. Feel free to skim the Helfrich article. The Bindas and Houston articles is a great historical perspective, different from the Lynskey article.
Watch: Berkeley in the 60’s
ar, 20th Century Fox’s chime, Tarzan’s yell, Intel’s jingle, default ring-tone of a Nokia mobile phone and many more. In India the first ever sound mark was granted to Yahoo! Inc. in 2008 for a man’s voice yodelling yahoo. ICICI Bank was the first Indian entity to obtain sound track registration with the Indian Trade Mark Registry. Colour Mark Colour marks are those marks where a distinct colour or combination of colours is associated with a product or brand and takes us to the original source. Although graphical representation may not be a hurdle for colour marks, they are not easily granted. Section 10 of Trade Marks Act, 1999 talks about registration of a colour combination but only when such colour combination is present in an otherwise traditional logo or mark so that the colour is secondary and the design of the mark is the primary thing to get registered as a trade mark. Essentially the Act can protect a certain mark in a certain colour combination but not the colour itself. However, the Act doesn’t exclude colours and colour combinations from the purview of the definition of trade mark either. Another obstacle faced is the Functionality Doctrine. Its says that a colour cannot be a trademark if the colour is functional in nature. Under this ‘functionality doctrine’, if the feature of the product for which protection is sought is useful or affects the cost or the quality of the article, such that granting trademark protection to the feature would put competitors at a significant disadvantage, the feature is not entitled to trademark protection. For example, a court held that the colour black when used on outboard boat motors serves a functional purpose, since the colour black is compatible with all other boat colours and also because the colour black makes the motor appear smaller. The first successful case of colour trademark was in the US. In Qualitex Co. v Jacobson Products Company, Inc. the petitioner company had been using a special shade of green-gold for their dry cleaning press pads since the 1950s. In 1989, Jacobson Products Co. started using a very similar shade of green-gold on its own press pads. Qualitex Co. got it’s shade of green-gold trademarked and also sued Jacobson for infringement. Another issue faced by colour marks is the possibility of there being litigation over shades of the same colour. A solution to this problem is designation of a colour using an internationally recognised identification code like Pantone as such codes are deemed to be precise and stable. The Pantone is a commercial system that designates specific shades numerically and categorises over thousand such shades by unique codes. Tiffany and Co.’s unique shade of blue ‘Tiffany Blue’ has been a registered trademark since 1998 and also has its own custom Pantone number – 1837, the year the company was founded. T-Mobile’s colour ‘Magenta’, Mattel’s ‘Barbie Pink’, UPS’s ‘Pullman Brown’ are some more examples of colour marks. India is yet to set precedence as far as colour marks are concerned.
