Rolling Stones threaten to sue Trump if he keeps using their music
President Trump is playing with fire.
The Rolling Stones have threatened to sue the commander in chief over his usage of their music at his campaign rallies, according to Rolling Stone magazine.
Trump, 74, most recently played “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” at his latest partly attended extravaganza in Tulsa last weekend.
The British rockers have complained about Trump playing their music since his 2016 presidential campaign, but their cease-and-desist orders haven’t stopped him. His team even played “Heart of Stone” at his 2017 inauguration.
After four years of being unable to get what they want, the Stones are increasing the pressure, Deadline reported. The band — including frontman Mick Jagger and guitarist Keith Richards — worked with performing rights organization BMI, which represents more than 1 million performers, and figured out exactly how they can sue Trump for violating a larger licensing agreement.
据《最后期限》报道，四年以来，滚石乐队一直未能停止特朗普的行为，所以他们决定加大力度。该乐队（包括主唱Mick Jagger和吉他手Keith Richards）与表演版权组织BMI合作，该组织旗下超过100万名表演者，共同寻求如何以违反授权协议的罪名起诉特朗普。
“This could be the last time Trump uses any Jagger/Richards songs on his campaigns,” the band said in a Saturday statement to Rolling Stone. “If Donald Trump disregards the exclusion and persists, then he would face a lawsuit.”
Numerous musicians, from the late Tom Petty’s family to T.I. to Neil Young, have blasted Trump for using their work and tried to stop him from continuing to do so.
从汤姆·派蒂一家（Tom Petty’s family）到南岸说唱之王T.I.再到尼尔·杨（Neil Young）， 许多歌手都曾抨击特朗普使用自己的作品并试图阻止。
