Universal Music has filed a copyright infringement claim against an Australian politician for using a re-worked version of a song by heavy-metal band Twisted Sister in political advertisements.
The complaint, which was filed on February 6 at the Federal Court of Australia, said Clive Palmer had used the 1980’s song “We’re Not Gonna Take It” without authorisation in advertisements to support his re-election bid.
Celebrity: Dee Snider
Parade: Krewe of Pontchartrain, Uptown
Date: Saturday, Feb. 23 at 1 p.m.
More: Snider of Twisted Sister is joining the parade this year, themed "Pontchartrain Rocks.'' His float is titled "Rock 'n' Roll,'' and Snider will be throwing his own special medallion bead.
The lead singer of an American rock band which has accused Clive Palmer of using one of their songs without permission says being linked to the mining magnate has made him look bad.
Twisted Sister say Mr Palmer used their 1980s hit We're Not Gonna Take It as inspiration for the song used in a television advertisement for his United Australia Party.
