Neil Young sues Donald Trump campaign for using his music

Wed 5 Aug, 2020 06:33 pm
Neil Young is suing Donald Trump’s campaign for alleged illegal usage of his music at a rally.

The musician claims that Rockin’ in the Free World and Devil’s Sidewalk were played at the president’s recent rally in Tulsa without a license. Both songs have also been used before by the campaign.

“This complaint is not intended to disrespect the rights and opinions of American citizens, who are free to support the candidate of their choosing,” reads the copyright infringement complaint filed in New York federal court. “However, Plaintiff in good conscience cannot allow his music to be used as a ‘theme song’ for a divisive, un-American campaign of ignorance and hate.”


Neil Young is a goofy hippie just like all other progressives.

It would be fair for him to pay reasonable royalties, but Mr. Trump should ignore any attempt to block his use of any song.
