Why dont you just use Cat Scratch Fever Bush!

 

John Hall, a former Democratic county legislator in upstate New York, co-wrote the song and recorded it with his band Orleans in 1976. He complained Friday morning about the campaign's use of the song at the president's events.

 

Hall, still a working musician at 56, wrote "Still the One" with his then-wife, Johanna D. Hall. The two, as well as surviving members of the band, are supporters of Democratic Sen. John Kerry and didn't want their work used to promote Bush's re-election.

If we follow the tonyi logic of polls, any slight shift in Kerry's favor means this has had an adverse affect on Bush.

My take is if you pay the royalties, you can play whatever the hell you feel like.

So if you wrote a song about the mistreatment of Vietnam Vets and it was then used by a man who stood for the complete opposite of ideals you believed, you wouldn't have the smallest problem with that.

Unless in the license of use you put in a clause claiming that you can disallow use of your music against your beliefs and your then refund the royalties payment, then you have no say in how it is used.

 

You think Ford and GM like having drunk drivers kill people driving their products?
