(H/T: Hot Air Headlines) I think that you should go for two million, David Byrne. I think that you should get an immediate injunction against, or seizure of Crist’s bank account – or whatever it is that they call it. And a groveling apology. Heck, want a pony? Charlie Crist should give you a pony.
David Byrne is suing the governor of Florida, alleging that he used the Talking Heads’ 1985 single “Road to Nowhere” without permission or proper licenses.
Byrne is seeking $1 million in damages from Gov. Charlie Crist, who’s also Florida’s former Attorney General, and his senatorial campaign for use of the song earlier this year in a website and YouTube ad attacking his then-Republican primary opponent, Marco Rubio. Crist has since changed his campaign and is running as an independent candidate.
Let me also note, for the record? Charlie Crist is an independent. In-de-pen-dent. We are not responsible for him, in a very real, and legal sense.
Just wanted to make that clear.
