YouTube posted a comment citing copyright infringement concerns from Warren Chappel Music Inc., which owns the rights to the 1985 charity fundraiser song “We Are the World.” The video, made by the satirical Web site Latma TV depicts a mock crew of the flotilla, some wearing keffiyehs and speaking in Arab accents, performing a song to the tune of “We Are the World.” The parody, which received international — and often critical — acknowledgement, is available on other Web sites, while a Hebrew subtitled version is still available on YouTube.
