No, they don't need permission to play a song at a rally. See my post above. The suit is just a PR stunt.

There is no need to get the approval of the band, their publishing company, or record label.

All that is needed is that the venue/arena where the music is being used has a general public performance license with ASCAP/BMI/SESAC. That's all.

All these foolish bands have zero legal basis for what they're doing - it's purely a PR move.

Check out a younger guy named Robert Ellis from Houston. Great country influenced by the likes of George Jones and other older folk singers.

I've seen him play, he's the real deal!

They don't. Not on news shows/live shows. It's called the ephemeral rule.

Sitcoms and dramas - written content that takes time to be made - does need their permission however.

There have been test screenings & it's been shown at some festivals. Earlier this summer they were looking for a distributor...I'm guessing they've found one. Definitely check it out when it's in your area.

Heh, yeah...I am fortunate that I am able to get an industry pass, so thankfully I don't have to deal with all of that. Had a ton of fun this year.

I saw this at Comic-Con, and it is a lot of fun. The action, non-CGI & humor were great. Very refreshing.

My only problem with the film was the "de-mystifying" a bit of the aliens and attempting to make it purely scientific, rather than just having a being which is just evil (such as the Balrog in Lord of the Rings). Too many films/books/shows do that these days...thanks modernist, materialist thought! Oh well.

Like I said though, fun movie, short & enjoyable!

Dream on! That might actually make for a thoughtful, interesting show.

I'll just go watch Friday Night Lights again, thank you.
