David Byrne Sues Charlie Crist

“As an attorney and the former attorney general of Florida, Governor Crist knows better. A political candidate may not incorporate the artistry of musicians and a songwriter into a campaign commercial without getting a license.”
-Attorney, Lawrence Iser, representing David Byrne in lawsuit against Charlie Crist for using the Talking Heads song “Road to Nowhere” without permission in his now-abandoned Senate campaign against fellow Republican Marco Rubio. Here’s the rule: No Springsteen, no Heart, no Jackson Browne, no Talking Heads. At this point, Republican ad departments would be better off just sticking with the Nuge. Just score every single ad with “Stranglehold” and call it a day.
