Neil Young Drops Copyright Infringement Lawsuit Against President Trump

Neil Young has officially dropped his copyright infringement lawsuit against Donald Trump.

The 75-year-old artist (as well as his Silver Fiddle Music publishing company) recently put the months-running complaint to rest. In a brief notice submitted to a New York federal court, Neil Young and his legal team voluntarily dismissed the case, which named Donald J. Trump for President as a defendant.

The “Heart of Gold” singer-songwriter filed the suit in August, following Trump’s June 20th campaign rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Two Neil Young tracks — “Rockin’ In the Free World” and “Devil’s Sidewalk” — played during the event. The infringement complaint emphasized Young’s opposition to the songs’ use and indicated that “the Campaign does not now have, and did not at the time of the Tulsa rally, have a license” to play the works.
