Rock Band Rush Orders Rand Paul to Stop Using Its Music

Kentucky Republican Senate nominee Rand Paul has been using songs from the rock band Rush to give his campaign message a musical kick -- unfortunately for him, Rush never signed off on that decision and wants the campaign to cut it out.

The Louisville Courier-Journal reports that Robert Farmer, an attorney for Rush, fired off a letter to Paul's campaign, accusing them of copyright infringement and warning them to stop using the music.

"This is not a political issue -- this is a copyright issue," Farmer told the Louisville Courier-Journal. "We would do this no matter who it is."

Paul, a Tea Party favorite who secured the Republican nomination in the May 18 primary, has used the Canadian rock band's songs, including "The Spirit of Radio" and "Tom Sawyer," in campaign videos and rallies, according to the newspaper.
