Liberal Rocker Neil Young Files Lawsuit Against President Trump For Alleged Copyright Infringement

The liberal rocker Neil Young just filed a lawsuit against President Donald Trump’s campaign on Tuesday for alleged copyright infringement after they played his songs at a recent rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

In the suit, Young claimed that President Trump did not have the right to play his songs “Devil’s Sidewalk” and “Rockin’ in the Free World” during his campaign rally on June 20.

“This complaint is not intended to disrespect the rights and opinions of American citizens, who are free to support the candidate of their choosing,” the complaint filed in New York City court reads, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “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.”

Young had initially said that he would not sue Trump for this because he wanted the president to focus on fighting the coronavirus pandemic. However, he then changed his mind after Trump deployed federal agents to Democrat-run cities plagued by an increase in crime.

“There is a long history to consider and I originally considered it, deciding not to pursue. But then President Trump ordered thugs in uniform onto our streets,” Young wrote in a blog post explaining why he changed his mind. “He ordered this himself. This is all DJT. He told them to wear camouflage, use unmarked vehicles to take people away, innocent people peacefully protesting — their constitutional right as US citizens.”

Not stopping there, the Grammy-winner went on to urge local police officers to arrest federal agents, denigrating them as “untrained thugs.”

Our police should arrest these untrained thugs for breaking our laws,” Young wrote. “They have zero de-escalation training, a must have for the job they are mishandling, so they’re totally unqualified to be there.”

Young has repeatedly bashed Trump over the years, going so far as to call him “a disgrace to my country” and saying that he will do whatever it takes to beat Trump in November. Incidentally, Mr. Young was born in Toronto, Canada.
