A video in which US President Donald Trump re-posted in twitter the soundtrack of a Batman movie was dragged from his account for the copyright violations. The text included at the starting of the 2020 Trump campaign video made by the fan, “ first they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they call you racist”, as pictures of Democrats Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton flared on the screen.
The video, in which US President retweeted on Tuesday evening, presented images of his Presidency including his meeting with a leader of North Korea, Kim Jong-un and the approval of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
The video claimed, “ Your vote proved them all wrong,” the two-minute video said, calling Trump’s 2020 re-election a “great victory.”
The soundtrack of the video had been composed with Hans Zimmer’s “Why Do We Fall” from the 2012 movie “The Dark Knight Rises” – and movie Warner Brothers, which possesses the Batman franchise, was not happy.
The movie studio claimed, “ the use of Warner Bros.’ score from The Dark Knight Rises’ in the campaign video was unauthorized.” It added, “we are working through the appropriate legal channels to have it removed. ”
All those were left on Trump’s Twitter news was an inactive link with a message which read “ this media has been disabled in response to a report by the copyright owner.”
The video gathered 101,000 likes and 31,000 retweets before it was dragged. This was not the first time that the President has reposted in twitter the controversial fan-made material.
The Musicians including Pharell Williams and Aerosmith have also lodged complaints about the US President using their music for political purposes.
