+ - Florida Governor Sued For Copyright Infringment->

Submitted by Kilrah_il
Kilrah_il (1692978) writes "Florida governor, Charlie Crist, used the Talking Heads' song "Road to Nowhere" in his campaign against his Republican opponent, Marco Rubio. Apparently, he forgot to ask the record company for permission. Warner Bros. contacted him and he promptly stopped using the song, but Talking Heads' frontman, David Byrne, isn't satisfied and is suing him for "one-million dollars" (insert Austin Powers joke here). "[The lawsuit] is not about politics... It's about copyright and about the fact that it does imply that I would have licensed it and endorsed him and whatever he stands for." What do you think the RIAA will say about this?"
