Time to reclaim the name! I stand with Rush!

The Canadian Prog-Rock Supergroup RUSH!

The members of Rush through their attorney at The Anthem Entertainment Group have issued a cease and desist order to Racist Limpballs so that he never taints their music by having it associated with his misogynistic shit show ever again.

Thanks to the Bob Cesca Awesome Blog! Go! From the Order:
According to media reports, Rush Limbaugh, Premiere Radio Networks and The Rush Limbaugh Show have been using Rush's recorded music as part of what is essentially a political broadcast.

The use of Rush's music in this way is an infringement of Rush's copyrights and trademarks. The public performance of Rush's music is not licensed for political purposes and any such use is in breach of public performance licenses and constitutes copyright infringement. There are civil and criminal remedies for copyright infringement, including statutory damages and fines.

In addition, the use of Rush's music in this manner implies an endorsement of the views expressed and products advertised on the show, and is in breach of not only copyright and trademark rights, but also, of section 51 of the New York Civil Rights Law (excerpt attached).

Accordingly, we hereby demand that you immediately stop all use of Rush's music and confirm that you will do so.
This follows a well worn path trod by Right-Wingers.

Conservatives are mental midgets and constantly resort to thievery of intellectual property to cover their deficiencies. It happens over and over and over. A Conservative ass-clown appropriates the intellectual property of an artist without permission and then ignores the just demands of that artist to stop stealing. It just goes to show how the conservative claims to staunchly support property rights is a bunch of right-wing bullshit.

Michele Bachmann continually swiped Tom Petty's American Girl apparently just by the title not actually from listening to the content of the song.

Just this week, Newtradamus Gingrich demanded a Federal Judge toss out a lawsuit against him from Frank Sullivan the writer of Eye of the Tiger. If the Judge refuses to make the decision Gingrich wants, he has vowed to send the U.S. Capital Police to arrest him.

But, King Thief Ronnie Raygun famously stole from both John Cougar Mellencamp and Bruce Springsteen.

I can understand why conservatives consistently steal the music of Liberal musicians for their theme songs. When was the last time Ted Nugent produced anything musically significant? Republicans are petty thieves and Vultures, creatures unable to craft anything of value on their own and existing only by stealing.

Yeah, he actually had people believing it was him the wrote and sang those songs...

What idiocy...

Don't be so hard on yourself silver fiddle! You're not an idiot.

Why do Republicans use popular music? Because it's a way to make people believe the musician shares their beliefs and tacitly endorses them.

I'm sadden to see you don't believe people (even Canadians) have a right to control their property rights!

But, that's just more conservative hypocrisy.

Keep up the good work Silverfiddle, Mitt Romney appreciates your support!

Ronnie was a music expert: remember when the Austrian ambassador visited and Reagan
ordered 'Eidelwiess' played?
He thought it was the national
anthem of Austria (not the 1959
tune from Sound of Music)

Ha didn't know that, I do recall Reagan put out an album in 1961 riffing that Old and Sick Americans should exposed and left to die because Freedom and the Constitution demanded it!

So, it is stealing only if people believe you wrote and sang the song? You must love the music and movie pirate sites.

If right wingnutter politicians could only use tunes written by musicians who support them, they'd have to use Wagner... and even then they'd probably offend the composer's family.

Other than Ted Nugent, I can't think of many popular musicians who would be willing to let these troglodytes rip off their songs for campaign themes. And Nugent hasn't had a popular song since Reagan was in the White House.

Most Right-Wingers are shockingly oblivious. Remember Sarah Palin tried to invoke Rage Against the Machine, Annoy a Liberal, Vote for Newt Gingrich!

It's an ignorant joke is a 20-25% think Palin and Tom Morello are simpatico.

Rage also told R. Limpballs to stop stealing from them.

Maybe, the totally hetero Pat Boone might be willing to provide some songs for conservatives.
