I asked in questions, but no luck there so I'll try here! Anyone know if there's an issue with song lyrics? I just mention the title, then later one line from the song. I'd hate to get dinged for it!

I don't know if you would be dinged for the lyrics here in the comp, but outside of it, you would.  Titles are fine, but lyrics are copyrighted material, and it's very difficult (and expensive) to get permissions.

I took first using the lyrics to Somewhere Over the Rainbow in R1 one year. None of the judges mentioned it. But since it’s not a public domain song, now there’s nothing I can do with the story.
