Don Henley sues Senate Candidate

Don Henley, of The Eagles, is suing Republican Senate candidate Charles DeVore for using parody's of Henley's songs "The Boys of Summer" and "All She Wants to Do is Danoce" in two campaign videos without permission. DeVore has responded saying that the use is within his first amendment freedom of political speech. You can read the article here.

Comment: It is likely DeVore will prevail because parody is allowed as fair use under the US Copyright act.
