Rihanna Wins Licensing Battle Against Trump Campaign

The Los Angeles Times reports:

Pop star Rihanna won a legal victory over President Trump this week after her performing rights company Broadcast Music Inc., (BMI) informed the Trump campaign that it can no longer use her music at events.

BMI removed Rihanna’s music from the blanket “political entities license” agreement which previously gave Trump’s campaign license the right to play Rihanna songs during his campaign events and rallies.

The move comes just after RiRi’s lawyer sent the White House a cease-and-desist letter earlier this week upon learning that Trump played her 2007 hit “Don’t Stop the Music” at a rally in Chattanooga, Tenn., over the weekend.

The list of pop artists demanding that Trump stop exploiting their music includes Queen, Aerosmith, Elton John, Adele, Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young, and about a dozen others.
