Music on the Campaign Trail
Politicians love using popular songs at rallies and in campaign ads. But every election season brings new stories about musicians who don't love the politicians who are using their work, and issues where political campaigns may even be violating copyright law.
We'll walk through the copyright and other legal issues that come up when politicians use music in campaign ads and at public events. And we'll talk about what happens when ethics and the law collide.
