I think Trump just does what he wants.


Then tells his lawyers to figure it out.


And Hillary does whatever she wants, and then tells her lawyers and the victims to eat sh%t

Didn't know Hillary was using a copyrighted sound track.

Perhaps you could stay on topic.

DNC convention coming soon.

Right now this is about Trump.

The only thing Trump supporters can say about him that's true is that he's not Hillary, that's why they always need to change the subject.

My sister emailed me to ask why Donald Trump would use a gay man's song. Interesting explanation here.


hyper-masculine chorus that has this defiant notion of mastery and conquest. But, of course, it's done to carry a message of homosexual liberation. It includes lyrics like, "I've done my sentence but committed no crime," and "we mean to go on and on and on," these thinly veiled allusions to Freddie Mercury's semi-closeted lifestyle. And then as the song becomes a staple at sporting events, it gets sort of inverted as a heteronormative anthem and those homosexual connotations get lost.

heteronormative---a world view that promotes heterosexuality as the normal or preferred sexual orientation

What Freddie Mercury and Donald Trump have in common


It's very much in keeping with notions of the spectacle and atmosphere of the carnivalesque that sporting events—and political rallies, for that matter—depend on creating. ...That was what the carnival was meant to do: You put on a mask for a period of a time. Look at the original video for “We Are the Champions.” Freddie Mercury is in a harlequin outfit, a commedia dell'arte character.



Carnivalesque is about this idea of flipping social convention and flipping identity. In a sporting event, it's okay for a man to kiss another man; that isn't acceptable behavior on the street for a lot of people. Hugging and crying and all those stereotypically non-masculine behaviors become acceptable. And at a [political] convention, everybody is supposed to be equal and you become, hopefully, one unified homogenous party. You're all wearing a mask because of it, leaving your true identity and your true beliefs at the door.



... it's equally true of the U.S. political system, which is just a spectacle—it's a spending of a huge amount of money for image. Donald Trump can do it, he's been able to do it his entire career, because he has money.


as for the Wall.... of course they know it represents "fascism, paranoia and suicidal isolationism", because it IS their symbol, it IS their core

Trump is oligarchy manifested as fascism.

ok, as being a person that earned my living as a performing artist for many years, I will explain how this works, since some of you fail to grasp the basics in it.

Let's say you are in a band, you write some songs.You sign a record contract. You sign a contract with BMI and ASCAP. these are the big two companies that manage the rights to music. They grant the licenses to venues, individuals, radio stations etc to play copywrite protected music. Now, on to the recording contract, a typical contract will assign ownership of material written, recorded and/or performed for the duration of the contract, as well as likeness of the individual(s).

the record company will grant points and lay out the compensation scheme. So let's say they grant 2 points, what that means is they give the artist 2% of album sales. Now here's the tricky part, they front the artist the funds to record that album based on projected sales. So out of that 2% comes the costs of studio time, production costs, marketing, on down the line.

As far as who owns what, the artist owns nothing, unless they self finance, self release etc. Have their own label, which in this case Queen, did none of that. They had industry standard contracts for their status at the time. The song in question was on the "News of the World" album. That album was on the EMI/Parlophone label in the UK and Elektra in the US and Canada. The rights to music over time, can revert to another party or be sold at anytime to anyone wishing to purchase it. Remember a huge portion of Michael Jackson's wealth was that he owned the entire Beatle's catalog. So, as has been stated. Disney now owns the rights to the song in question. Brian May has to get permission from Disney to publicly perform the music as well.

The nuts and bolts of this are pretty complicated, but to summerize, as long as the venue they are performing at has a "public performance" license with BMI or ASCAP, then there is nothing that can really be done by anyone for the one time use of a song. Now, if Trump wanted to use it as a theme for his campaign, that is another story. If he did that he would need to get permission from Disney, not Queen, as Queen really has no legal authority to the music. All they can do is appeal to the person to please not use it.
