Skip to comments.Jackson Browne v. John McCain - Heading to Trial?
Posted on 02/23/2009 8:16:45 PM PST by Perdogg
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is not out of the woods on one pending legal matter involving his presidential campaign.
A federal district court in Los Angeles over the weekend declined to dismiss singer Jackson Browne's lawsuit against the senator and the Republican National Committee for the unauthorized use of his song "Running On Empty" in a political Web video.
Browne, an outspoken liberal, sued McCain, the RNC and the Ohio Republican Party for copyright infringement last August after the state party used his famous song in an online video promoting McCain's presidential candidacy.

Since ol Jackson hasn’t made a decent selling record in 20 years, I guess any publicity is good.
My wallet is “runnin on empty” when it comes to Browne’s records.
What poor business judgment these “entertainers” have.

Jackson Browne. His stuff pretty well stinks, doesn’t it?
When Jackson Browne says, "I'd Hit It", he really means it.
Dude, the blonde looks like a tranny.
Actually Browne played a big role in many of the Eagles hits from years ago not to mention a slew of great records himself.
It’s time for all Republicans to treat John McCain the way he treats conservatives, by defending the liberal scum that John so desperately wants to defend. So, in that spirit, I must say:
Jackson Brown is a wonderful American. For John to abuse his intellectual property this way is inexcusable. We will simply not be a part of the hate rhetoric that Mr. McCain chooses to display.
Just because he and the Eagles are bleeding hearts doesn’t mean they didn’t make great music in their time. Saying he is irrelevant now is like saying Sinatra is irrelevant now. It’s true, but irrelevant....lol
LOL. Can we sue the GOP for nominating the lemon too?
What has he written/sung recently? I have not heard his name for years.
why not, “McCain scewed up and let this be a lesson to those who want to run a campaign”. Why does it have to be a defense of anyone? Why not just acknowledge the mistake and realize they screwed up?
I couldn’t tell you. I don’t follow him close enough to know. But, I’m sure it’s better than the crap I get in the radio these days. No story tellers anymore.
Big Deal. It’ll probably get ruled as fair use, lots of precedent, I’s guess this is more about Browne acting like the yappy little dog and showing his lib colors.
He ought to shut up and sing, but I don’t think he’s done anything in the last 30 years that anyone really cares to hear.
Although this gentleman prefers brunettes, Daryl Hannah has a goddess body.
This dorks song can be downloaded here.
Does he still beat his girl friends?
All 5'10" of her. Keep your hands off; she's mine!
John Gacy was a pretty good carpenter... and I read he was good at drawing clowns... before he was executed for murdering at least 32 young boys.
If you consider abortion alone, Liberal thinking has caused more damage to humankind than even John Gacy.
Sometimes your present performance can overshadow your past.
The libs can have Jackson Browne. I’ll take Johnny Ramone and Ted Nugent any day.
Hate to say it BUT
I would take Jackson Browne’s music over Ted Nugent’s music more than I would take Nugent’s politics over Browne’s politics ...
In retrospect,a fitting song for mcnutts part of the campaign.Palin was the only bright part of the ticket.
SirKit and I went to see him in concert, back in 1974, when he was first getting started in the music world. If I remember correctly, tickets were less than a dollar, and the concert was at the National Guard Armory in Mobile AL.
Another AH coming out of the woodwork.
Just for that I’m gonna find a torrent for your song Browne.
No wait I won’t, because you suck.
All downhill after Doctor My Eyes.
Unfortunately, McInsane was running on empty.
This is crap, I’m sure the RNC paid the fees, this song is listed in the catalogue, so all they had to do was use it an pay the fees for it. Brown didn’t like it, now trying to cause a stir, but I really doubt the RNC used the song without paying the fees.
