Nickelback’s Copyright Complaint Zaps Trump Tweet

The Guardian reports:

A video posted by Donald Trump has been removed from Twitter following a copyright claim by the rock band Nickelback. The video took aim at the Democratic candidate Joe Biden, opening with a clip of him saying he had never discussed business dealings with his son Hunter.

Trump’s efforts to encourage the Ukrainian president to investigate Hunter Biden lie at the centre of an impeachment inquiry launched by House Democrats last week. Following the Biden clip, the clip posted by Trump cuts to a popular, if niche, meme, based on an edit of the music video for the 2005 Nickelback single Photograph.
