An online animated short is under criticism from the publisher that owns the copyright to Woody Guthrie's song "This Land is Your Land." The political parody features President Bush and Democratic nominee John Kerry singing very different lyrics to the tune. Guthrie's son, Arlo, calls in from a Flying J truck stop in Des Moines, Iowa, to offer his take on the matter.
