On Tuesday, Donald Trump published a tweet containing a promotional campaign video, featuring some original music from Christopher Nolan's film The Dark Knight Rises. Inspiring to get reelected in 2020 for a second term, Trump sent the video with the words MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
Some of the words appearing on screen were: "First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they call you racist. Donald J. Trump. Your vote. Proved them all wrong. Trump: The Great Victory 2020."
Soon after, Warner Bros. shut down the video, as Trump's campaign had not asked for the authorization to use Hans Zimmer's music.
A spokesman from Warner explained that "the use of Warner Bros.' score from The Dark Knight Rises in the campaign video was unauthorized."
The morale of the story is that no one is above copyright infringement, even the President of the United States.
