Trump Campaign Flouts Copyright Laws, Uses Ton of Unauthorized Music at Convention Without Permission


Donald Trump and the RNC are using a ton of music tonight without permission. They used Free’s All Right Now, written by Paul Rodgers tonight. But they also used it three days ago and were warned by Rodgers on Twitter.
