Linkin Park get Trump campaign video disabled over copyright violation.

July 20, 2020

President Trump's campaign has once again run into resistance from the music community. A newly launched Trump video was disabled on social media after Linkin Park claimed a copyright violation when a cover of their song "In the End" was used.

The clip utilized a cover of "In the End" done by Fleurie and Jung Youth that raised concern amongst Linkin Park fans. Fans were quick to notice the song usage, with "Linkin Park" soon becoming a trending topic on Twitter. Not long after, the video was taken down with the message, "This media has been disabled in response to a report by the copyright owner."

As expected, there was quite a response to the Trump video being taken down. Included in the tweets were fans digging back through late singer Chester Bennington's social media in which he tweeted back in 2017, "Trump is a greater threat to the USA than terrorism. We have to take back our voices and stand for what we believe in."

The Trump campaign has repeatedly received push back from the music community over song usage at rallies, with Tom Petty, Aerosmith, Queen, Guns N' Roses, Ozzy Osbourne, Panic! at the Disco and Twisted Sister all lodging complaints. In addition, the Rolling Stones had previously issued cease and desist directives to the Trump campaign, but recently worked with BMI to ensure that any further usage by the President would constitute a breach of licensing agreement, opening him up to a lawsuit.
