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.This follows a well worn path trod by Right-Wingers.
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.
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.
