Warner Music Group Accuses President Trump Of Copyright Infringement For Use Of Nickelback Music Video
On October 2, President Trump, 73, tweeted out yet another bizarre video. Trump thought he would join in on the popular meme, in which users replace lead singer Chad Kroeger’s, 44, infamous photograph in Nickelback’s music video for “Photograph.”
Trump’s meme-inspired video was edited to create an attack against former Vice President Joe Biden and was captioned with the lyrics “LOOK AT THIS PHOTOGRAPH!” Not too long after the video was posted Warner Music Group filed a complaint against Trump claiming copyright infringement over his use of Nickelback’s music and the video was disabled.
Trump has not learned his lesson with social media usage, as this is the second time this year he has been accused of copyright infringement. Before the Nickelback incident, the president posted a video that included music from The Dark Knight Rises. This video was taken down from Twitter as well by the request of Warner Bros.
