On Tuesday night, the Trump team played the Aerosmith song, “Livin’ on the Edge,” at a rally in West Virginia. But, it looks like Aerosmith lead singer Steven Tyler was not so happy about it. As it looks like, Aeroshit wants no part in the agenda of “Making America Great Again”.
On Wednesday, Tyler has issued a cease and desist letter through his lawyer Dina LaPolt to the White House demanding that Trump stop playing Tyler’s songs at his rallies. The letter cites the Lanham Act, which prohibits uses of intellectual property that carry with them “any false designation or misleading description or representation of fact … likely to cause confusion … as to the affiliation, connection, or association of such person with another person.”

In 2015, Tyler sent two cease-and-desist letters to Trump’s camp for using Aerosmith’s hit song Dream On at campaign events.
Trump agreed to stop using Dream On at campaign rallies at the time, though he contended he had paid for the rights to use the song.
Steven Tyler needs to check into who owns the rights and conditions under which his songs can be fairly used. He shouldn’t have sold himself out to mainstream then. Trump pays for the songs he plays at his rallies. Hey Steven. It’s called a free market and you’re a seller of your music. Trump is a buyer. You should be thanking him.
Hollywood celebrities lost their sanity a long time ago! As time passes by I am more certain that these Hollywood “celebrities” are nothing more than a bunch of overpaid loudmouths who have nothing intelligent to say but throwing constant attacks on conservatives.
Tyler’s treatment of President Trump was the tip of the iceberg, no one deserves to be disrespected like that, I don’t care what your political views are. We as Americans are sick of their vile hatred.
So, it’s definitely a time to boycott these egotistic privileged people and their music! Do you agree?
