Why would Trump not be able to play their songs at a rally? Because they asked him not to? No, sorry that doesn't disallow him from doing it.


The members of Queen do not even own the rights. They can ask and he can say "Too bad. I paid the rightful owner, so ne ner ne ner!"


You don't even have to ask permission for songs many radio shows will make the payment seconds before playing it on air. Playlists from radio stations are nothing more than songs they paid to use. Want to add a song to play list it's a click away and they don't charge for shipping and handling .

Oh boo hoo!

A bunch of millionaire musicians bitching that other millionaires are using their stuff.
Does anybody really believe the music shows support for the politicians from the artists?

Please where does it show he paid?


In his tax returns.

If Queen doesn't own the music, then they can't say anything about it.

Hell, John Fogerty was sued for infringement because he sounded too much like John Fogerty.

The music biz can be messed up.



Facts[edit]

John Fogerty was the lead singer of the popular rock group Creedence Clearwater Revival. In 1970, while part of the group, he wrote the song "Run Through the Jungle." Fantasy Records, the record label to which Creedence Clearwater Revival was signed, eventually acquired the exclusive publishing rights to the song.

Creedence Clearwater Revival disbanded in 1972, and Fogerty began a solo career with another music label. In 1985, Fogerty published the song "The Old Man Down the Road", which he released on Warner Bros. Records. Fantasy sued Fogerty for copyright infringement, claiming that "The Old Man Down the Road" was essentially the music to "Run Through the Jungle" with new words. The case was litigated through a jury trial, and the jury found in Fogerty's favor, rejecting the claim of infringement. Fogerty then sought attorney's fees as authorized by the Copyright Act.

The person or corporation that owns the rights can do what they want.


No they can't. It's called "droit moral," and it is unsurprising that Trump would know nothing about it. Incidentally, don't you think it pathetic that he chose a song that is based on a schoolyard taunt?

using copywriter material without permission is a legal problem.


And if you scroll up and re-read the posts in order you will see that your post is superfluous

He's right, it is a legal problem. You need to follow your own advice and read the post above yours. Even if Brian May eventually loses the case, he can get a cease and desist order, and that will drive Trump further over the edge.

As has been explained to you no legal problem...

on Trump & Clinton

Royal connection! Donald Trump is distant cousin of notorious Richard III, it is revealed...and he's ALSO related to Hillary Clinton
MyHeritage.com claims that Trump and Hillary Clinton are direct descendants of the 14th century 1st Duke of Lancaster, John of Gaunt Gaunt, who died in 1399, was Richard III's great-great uncle



On Freddy

As far as British politics were concerned, Mercury was a major supporter of the British monarchy,11 an oftentimes controversial position. We could call him a loyalist.


All one big happy (illuminati) family- what's the problem?

Not if it's for "educational purposes" Trump's team is telling people they are the champions


Brilliant; what a clever legal manoeuvre

Well Reldra thinks Freddy is not amused, I have yet to figure out how he told her from the grave - she must have a special connection

How so - schoolyard? It can apply to any adversity faced in life.

No its not if they've paid royalties to the songs owners

en.wikipedia.org...


The economic rights are a property right which is limited in time and which may be transferred by the author to other people in the same way as any other property (although many countries require that the transfer must be in the form of a written contract). They are intended to allow the author or their holder to profit financially from his or her creation, and include the right to authorize the reproduction of the work in any form (Article 9, Berne Convention)[1]. The authors of dramatic works (plays, etc.) also have the right to authorize the public performance of their works (Article 11, Berne Convention).

The protection of the moral rights of an author is based on the view that a creative work is in some way an expression of the author’s personality: the moral rights are therefore personal to the author, and cannot be transferred to another person except by testament when the author dies.[2] The moral rights regime differs greatly between countries, but typically includes the right to be identified as the author of the work and the right to object to any distortion or mutilation of the work which would be prejudicial to his or her honour or reputation (Article 6bis, Berne Convention). In many countries, the moral rights of an author are perpetual.

from Reldras..


The 69-year-old guitarist wrote back to a fan at the time and assured he “will make sure we take what steps we can to dissociate ourselves from Donald Trump’s unsavoury campaign.”


I see nothing mentioned about a court case...you need to be less economical with the truth

From Brians own website - nothing about a court case

I’ve had an avalanche of complaints – some of which you can see in our ‘LETTERS’ page – about Donald Trump using our We Are The Champions track as his ‘theme’ song on USA TV. This is not an official Queen statement, but I can confirm that permission to use the track was neither sought nor given. We are taking advice on what steps we can take to ensure this use does not continue. Regardless of our views on Mr Trump’s platform, it has always been against our policy to allow Queen music to be used as a political campaigning tool. Our music embodies our own dreams and beliefs, but it is for all who care to listen and enjoy. Bri


Your turn...

So now we're worried about a copyright claim against a candidate, while the other one does whatever she wants with zero repercussions. This would make a great screenplay.

Actually, it is very telling that he has no respect for an artist's wishes, and we will see how calmly he takes the criticism.

He doesn't have to care about the artist wishes. If he paid to use the song then it's his, plain and simple.
