Warner Bros launch legal action against Donald Trump over Batman music

Warner Bros launch legal action against Donald Trump over Batman music

The move came hours after Trump posted a two-minute campaign video on Tuesday to the score from the 2012 blockbuster The Dark Knight Rises. Trump tweeted with the video, which reportedly racked up a few million views before being taken down.

"Sad to see an [AT&T] owned company pull such a great video made by an every day American in good fun", Parscale tweeted.

As of Tuesday at 11:58 p.m. ET, it was still on his timeline.

Warner Bros said it was in the process of having the video taken down due to the music being copyrighted.

Azarenka upsets Kerber, faces Muguruza in Monterrey final
This was the only round that she had lost a set and her fight for the victory was real and gritty winning 6-4, 4-6, 6-1. "I knew I had to go for it.

The video included highlights of Trump's presidency interwoven with clips of his critics, including politicians like former President Barack Obama and his 2016 opponent Hillary Clinton as well as Hollywood celebrities, such as Rosie O'Donnell and Amy Schumer. The typography in the video is also reminiscent of the Christopher Nolan film.

The White House also used a blockbuster-style during Trump's first meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. Juxtaposed with the Hans Zimmer score, text read "First they ignore you". And what is the thinking behind promoting the idea that everyone thinks you're racist? It had garnered almost 3 million views. HBO had to get involved when a Trump ad referenced "Game of Thrones," while Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler had to demand that Trump stop using his songs at his political rallies.

The video was apparently not created by the Trump campaign but rather by a fan. The president's mode of trolling was a crudely made video that had already been shared around Twitter, Reddit and elsewhere, according to the New York Times.
