Jackson Browne, Republicans Settle Copyright Case; Billboard, 7/21/09

Gary Graff via Billboard; Jackson Browne, Republicans Settle Copyright Case:

"Jackson Browne is hopeful that the protection of music copyrights will be bolstered by the settlement of his lawsuit against U.S. Sen. John McCain and the Republican Party over unauthorized use of one of his songs in the 2008 U.S. presidential campaign.

Last August Browne sued McCain, the Ohio Republican Party and the Republican National Committee for copyright infringement, false endorsement and violating his right of publicity after his 1977 hit "Running On Empty" was used without permission in a McCain campaign ad that aired on TV and the Internet."
