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.
