John Oliver once again is beyond clever in making a point. He looks at the music Trump played at the Republican Convention and at other politicians who have used theme songs for big impact. Oliver has something to say to politicians who take musicians’ songs. Songs NOT authorized to be played — NOT paid for — in other words — stolen or used illegally.
Using music without permission — this is just not ok — politicians need to play by the rules.
Make sure to watch the finale of this video — check out all the artists — they are so clever “Don’t use our song….it might seem appealing, but you’re just stealing.” “If I wanted to sing and not get paid — I’d be on Spotify.”
