Being in Canada this phenomenon almost passed right by me, but as I just
read up on it, I simply couldn't help myself. I've sent a "parodie"
(hint hint) version for 20-keyless crank-organ to the editor to be put
up at the MMD Sounds section for evrybody to enjoy. :-P

[ Read about the Internet success of "Schnappi, das kleine Krokodil"

[ The Wikipedia article says, "This phenomenon is claimed to refute
[ the notion that sharing music over the Internet is harmful to sales
[ figures. The huge commercial success of Schnappi may not have been
[ possible without P2P [Internet peer-to-peer] networks."
[ Unfortunately I cannot find evidence that the copyright owners,
[ composer Iris Gruttmann and publisher Universal Music, have officially
[ given free license to the world, so I can't publish Ingmar's cute
[ version at the MMD Archives. Please ask him for the MIDI file sample:
