USA Today reports:
Warner Bros. Pictures appears to have shut down a video posted on Twitter by President Donald Trump, citing a copyright issue. The two-minute 2020 campaign video, set to the score from the 2012 blockbuster “The Dark Knight Rises,” was unavailable Tuesday night, just hours after Trump had posted it to Twitter.
“The use of Warner Bros.’ score from ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ in the campaign video was unauthorized. We are working through the appropriate legal channels to have it removed,” a company spokesperson said in a statement.
The video was gone by Tuesday night, replaced with a message that read: “This media has been disabled in response to a report by the copyright owner.”
