This video was important because it has a more current take on the issue at hand. In this video, they describe a recent case that sounded similar to Henley v. DeVore. In this recent story, Steven Tyler sent cease and desist papers to Trump’s campaign. Tyler was angry after Trump was playing Tyler’s song “Dream On” during rallies for the Republican candidate. Although Tyler identifies as a Republican, he believes this is an issue of copyright infringement because Trump did not ask for permission to play “Dream On.” Musicians such as Adele are taking similar stances on the issue after the singer was put in the same position when “Rolling in the Deep” and “Skyfall” were played at a Trump rally earlier this year.
