::You may recall seeing my post about Eric Cantor and the GOP yesterday. It included a video, produced by House Minority Whip, Eric-the-loser-Cantor, and used Aerosmith's song, "Back in the Saddle".Well....as I predicted and was hoping, according to TPM, the GOP has been told by Aerosmith to stop using it. While it's a pity that the GOP can not be bothered to understand copyright law, it is entertaining. From TPM:
The GOP's use of the tune "was something we, as the publishers, didn't approve and would not have approved without going to the writers," Connie Ashton, director of copyright and licensing at Stage Three, told me. "Aerosmith did not approve of its use and also wanted to have it taken down," she added.
The video is no longer on You Tube.
