Vaseline Woman Faces Suit For Using Tom Petty Song

The Wrap reports:

Tom Petty’s estate intends to take legal action against Kari Lake after the defeated Arizona gubernatorial candidate posted a video that uses the late musician’s song “I Won’t Back Down” without permission.

“The Tom Petty estate and our partners were shocked to find out that Tom’s song ‘I Won’t Back Down’ was stolen and used without permission or a license to promote Kari Lake’s failed campaign,” Petty’s verified Twitter account posted Thursday.

The day before, Lake shared a two-minute clip on Twitter featuring the 1989 classic with footage from her unsuccessful campaign. The tweet has since been deleted.
