Steven Tyler had his lawyers send a cease-and-desist notice to Donald Trump's campaign for re-election, surrounding the President's use of Aerosmith music at his campaign events.
Last night, Aerosmith's 1993 song "Livin' On The Edge", was played at the Charleston Civic Center in West Virginia as people entered the arena for one of those raucous Trump rallies. According to Variety, Tyler's lawyer Dina LaPolt accused the White House of willful infringement in its use of the song.
Citing the Lanham Act, which prohibits “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,” Tyler’s attorney contends that playing an Aerosmith song in a public arena gives the false impression that Tyler is endorsing Trump’s presidency.
This isn't the first time The President's campaign has been at odds with the band. They were also given a "cease and desist" for using "Dream On" at a 2015 campaign event.
