Koch Records on Oct. 5 will release a CD single of the parody song "This Land Is Your Land" by JibJab Media.

The tune, which updates Woody Guthrie's folk anthem with satirical lyrics mocking President Bush and his Democratic challenger Sen. John Kerry, debuted earlier this year as the soundtrack to a Web-based animated short film, which is still streaming from JibJab's site.

The CD single will retail for $3.49. Koch also plans to make the cut available for paid download via Apple's iTunes Music Store.

The song was the subject of a legal dispute between JibJab and Ludlow Music, which owns the copyright to Guthrie's composition. The parties settled in August, agreeing that JibJab's version consituted an acceptable parody that did not infringe the copyright.

JibJab specializes in online and broadcast animation for use in marketing campaigns by entertainment and consumer-product companies.
