Rock bands keep filing copyright infringement claims to keep Trump from using their music.

This tweet featured a campaign video which used music by Queen without permission.

Courtesy of The Hill:

A campaign video tweeted by President Trump last week that featured music from Queen was taken down after the band’s publisher made a complaint.

The clip, which Trump tweeted from his account on Wednesday, featured footage of the president speaking at rallies accompanied by the song, “We Will Rock You.” The tweet now reads, “This media has been disabled in response to a report by the copyright owner.”

The Hill also reports that representatives of Prince’s estate filed a copyright claim against the Trump campaign to keep them from using the song “Purple Rain” at his rallies.

And perhaps you remember that the band Nickelback filed an infringement claim after Trump retweeted an attack against Joe Biden that featured their music.

Trump might as well face it, legitimate groups with reputations to protect are simply not going to let him use their songs at his Nazi white supremacist rallies. 

But hey, there are always those awesome Lee Greenwood and Ted Nugent songs to fall back on. 

Right?

    “Trump said again on Friday that Americans need identification to buy groceries, which remains not true.

    “You know, if you want to go out and buy groceries, you need identification. If you want to do almost anything you need identification. The only thing you don’t need identification for is to vote, the most important single thing you’re doing — to vote,” Trump said at a campaign rally in Lake Charles, Louisiana.”

    Ronan Farrow’s explosive reporting on movie mogul Harvey Weinstein’s alleged sexual misconduct helped launch the MeToo movement in 2017 and won him a Pulitzer Prize in 2018.

    And he just keeps doing it. He just moves from song to song and band to band but he will never stop. Because a malignant narcissist doesn’t think rules and laws apply to them, just to everyone else. He thinks he can do anything he wants with no consequences. So has he learned from this constant repetition of cease and desist from bands over illegal use of their music? Nope. He just keeps doing it.

    If he wants it to stop, why doesn’t he just use Ted Nugent’s songs? Probably because Nugent would want to be paid. (Aside from the fact Nugent sucks.)
