The publishing: Lehrer has accepted "The Tom Lehrer Wisdom Channel" on YouTube. He said OK as long as the performance is not altered and as long as it's free in the YouTube flash video format.

If you click on the user name you should know that the channel is Tom Lehrer only, with twelve songs on video from a 1967 performance. And here is a link to a NEW channel support page:
