Aerosmith To Trump: Stop Using Our Song

The Associated Press reports:

Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler is asking Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump to stop using the power ballad “Dream On” at campaign events. Attorneys for Tyler sent a second cease-and-desist letter to Trump’s campaign committee on Saturday. The letter says that Trump does “not have our client’s permission to use ‘Dream On'” or any of Tyler’s other songs and that it “gives the false impression that he is connected with or endorses Mr. Trump’s presidential bid.” Tyler, who is a registered Republican, attended the GOP contenders’ first debate in August.

Tyler’s lawyer says the issue isn’t with Trump himself but is a matter of permission and copyright.
