Neil Young Sues Donald Trump for Copyright Infringement | Consequence of Sound


"Imagine what it feels like to hear 'Rockin' in the Free World' after this President speaks, like it is his theme song. I did not write it for that," Young wrote last month.

Earlier this year, after becoming a US citizen with the express purpose of voting against Trump in the upcoming election, Young once more discussed the unauthorized use of his music. Writing directly to Trump, he said, "Every time 'Keep on Rockin' in the Free World' or one of my songs is played at your rallies, I hope you hear my voice. Remember it is the voice of a tax-paying US citizen who does not support you. Me."

Young is seeking "statutory damages in the maximum amount allowed for willful copyright infringement."

For years now, Young has sought to stop Trump from using his music to no avail. When Trump played "Rockin' in the Free World" at a 2015 event announcing his run for president, Young responded with a sternly worded open letter: "I do not endorse hate, bigotry, childish name calling, the superficiality of celebrity or ignorance," he wrote at the time.
