As per a new statement obtained by HuffPost, Warner Bros has reportedly filed copyright claim on Donald Trump after he used the score of “The Dark Knight Rises”.
Copyright Claim Filed On Donald Trump by Warner Bros
“The use of Warner Bros.’ score from ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ in the campaign video was unauthorized,” Warner Bros. said. “We are working through the appropriate legal channels to have it removed.”
A bizarre video was uploaded on US President Donald Trump’s Twitter account which included clips of himself edited along with Hans Zimmer’s score from The Dark Knight Rises. According to BuzzFeed, Warner Bros and WarnerMedia are in a process of filing a copyright claim in order to have the video removed from Twitter.
The video has a two minute clip of Donald Trump meeting with foreign politicians like North Korea’s King Jong Un and Jair Bolsonaro of Brazil. The footage is intercut by the footage of liberals from Barack Obama to Rose O’Donnell and Amy Schumer. The video didn’t have a single dialogue but features a text which says “Why do we fall?”
“First they ignore you,” the video reads. “Then they laugh at you, then they call you racist.”
Original Score Was By Hans Zimmer, White House Yet To State Anything
No comments have been made yet by the White House on this. Donald Trump’s Department of Justice once opposed the WarnerMedia and AT&T merger, although the courts of US allowed the deal to take place.
