Warner Brothers is taking legal action against US President Donald Trump after he posted a video on Twitter that used music from The Dark Knight Rises.
Trump yesterday posted the two-minute promotional video, seemingly as part of his 2020 re-election campaign, accompanied by the caption “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”
But Warner Brothers has issued a statement saying: “The use of Warner Bros' score from The Dark Knight Rises in the campaign video was unauthorised.
“We are working through the appropriate legal channels to have it removed.”
The video has now been taken down and replaced with a message stating it was “disabled in response to a report by the copyright owner”.
The complaint was centred on the use of Hans Zimmer’s Why Do We Fall? from the hit 2012 film.
The US President has been subjected to numerous copyright claims over his use of images and music in campaign videos and rallies.
R.E.M., The Rolling Stones and Pharrell Williams are among the artists to complain about Trump’s use of their songs.
