There are some funky places out there that do a slightly different version of the popular song in order to avoid the legality, and sell them in packages or by song as royalty free. There is a fine line in this area, but there is some grand music selections out there that sound so close to the original that nobody but the legal offices can tell the difference.
Not a good example, I know, but this is the same variation on music law that allowed Weird Al to do what he did legally.
