Larry Iser on Politico: Ask Musicians Before Using Their Songs For Political Campaigns

July 6, 2012 – Larry Iser, a music attorney who has been involved in many copyright cases, has an Op-Ed in Politico this morning about political campaigns getting into hot water for using a musician's music who does not agree with the candidate's policies. Seems Mitt Romney was using K'naan's song "Wavin' Flag" and was told to please cease and desist last February during the Republican primaries, along with Newt and others for other songs. Mr. Iser stresses to the candidate's and their campaigns to ASK FIRST, and respect the copyrights of the artists. Check out the Politico article here. (Photo credit: David Shankbone)
