Jackson Browne sues John McCain + Republicans for using his song without authorization

News:  Singer Jackson Browne filed a copyright infringement suit against John McCain, the Ohio Republican party, and Republican Party for using his song “Running on Empty” in a campaign video, but without permission from Browne.  (More from Wired)

Analysis:  I wish I could watch the video to hear how much music was taken.  I’ll try to say more later.   If I’m not mistaken, McCain ran into some earlier copyright troubles with FOX (if not others) and so did Barack Obama.  But this is the first copyright lawsuit filed against a presidential candidate, perhaps ever.
