YOU CAN BET IF OBONGO’S TEAM HAD PLAYED THIS HE’D NOT WHINE

All of a sudden this piece of shit rapper gets his kotex in a wad because one of his songs were played at a Trump rally.

Fucker’s a one-hit has-been who needs to attention-whore his way to 15 mote minutes of fame.

Sorry, but just because some people get killed does not necessarily mean the whole country has to go into mourning.

This isn’t Portugal in the 1920s.

Rapper Pharrell Williams sent President Donald Trump a cease and desist letter against using the song “Happy” after the song was played at a rally in Indiana on Saturday, the same day Robert Bowers allegedly killed 11 people at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Trump is accused of violating federal law (copyright and trademark infringement) for using the song without Williams’s permission.

“On the day of the mass murder of 11 human beings at the hands of a deranged ‘nationalist,’ you played his song ‘Happy’ to a crowd at a political event in Indiana,” read the letter. “There was nothing ‘Happy’ about the tragedy inflicted upon our country on Saturday and no permission was granted for your use of this song for this purpose.”

Social media history linked to Bowers indicated he was an anti-Semite, aggravated by the notion that HIAS, a group founded as the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, sponsored a “caravan” of immigrant Hispanic people to displace white Americans. Police said that he admitted to doing it, and claimed that Jews were committing genocide against “his people.”

Bowers’ social media history also showed that he disdained Trump, but the president has been criticized for enabling white supremacists and railing against immigration (targets are almost always from Hispanic and Muslim countries).

The White House and a Trump attorney did not immediately respond to a Law&Crime request for comment Monday.

    Hmmmmmmmmmm………..
    If I remember correctly, if only the first eight bars, or less, were played, no copyright infringement.
    If more of the song were played, I’m sure President Trump’s lawyers were smart enough to contact Pharrall’s lawyers and pay a one time usage fee.
    I wish whenever one of these Libtard anti-Trumper jackasses made a claim about “no permission”, one of Trump’s entourage would come out and show the permission usage contract. Shut up the anti-Trumpers right quick.

    All it would take is for the Republican party to purchase an ASCAP license to make
    this problem go away. Sure they might have to small royalty fees each time they
    play a number, but it wouldn’t break the bank.

    This reminds me about the Pretenders song Rush Limbaugh has been playing for
    Decades as an intro. Early on he got cease and desist letter from one her aides. As
    I recall, he stopped using the song for a while. Not too long after that, Limbaugh ran
    into Chrissy Hinds at some event. While engaging her in a conversation, she stated
    that her mother was a big Rush fan, and she sent him a permission letter right
    away. I may not have liked her music style but she had the kind of class that
    leftist twits on the left no longer possess.

    LJ,
    As an addition (I think I heard the same story), when Rush met Chrissy, she didn’t even know that Rush was using her music, and she didn’t know that her aide (AIDS?)/publicist/lawyer has issued the cease-and-desist letter.

  4. Leonard Jones says:

    Woodman, thanks. I forgot to add that the aide (or whoever) acted without her permission.

    PS Music is now being used as a weapon to punish conservative content. Private
    vloggers had their feed cut at the Walk Away rally in DC. The sound system was
    cranking out music to warm up the crowd. The same assholes at Jihadtube who
    allow full songs, albums and concert videos all of a sudden discovered that they
    could not permit the posing of copyrighted music?
