Trump’s Nickelback ‘Photograph’ Video Pulled by Twitter for Copyright Violation

Postby MrFredPFL » Fri Oct 04, 2019 1:40 am

Story :

Donald Trump, trying to smear Joe Biden and his son over their supposedly illicit business dealings in Ukraine, used Nickelback’s 2005 “Photograph” in a tweet Wednesday.

Now the video has been pulled down by Twitter. As of Thursday morning, the video in Trump’s tweet was no longer available. Instead, it included a message that said, “Video not displayed: This video has been removed in response to a report from the copyright holder.”

In the tweet, Trump posted in all caps, “LOOK AT THIS PHOTOGRAPH!” The video used a clip from Nickelback’s music video for the song showing bandmember Chad Kroeger holding up a picture frame — doctored to display a 2014 photo showing Joe and Hunter Biden on a golf course with Devon Archer, a colleague of Hunter identified as “Ukraine gas exec” in the now-deleted video. As BuzzFeed’s Paul McLeod noted, the photo surfaced by Trump and his cronies is misleading: If, as alleged, the picture is from 2014, then Archer and Hunter Biden “were already in business together and joined the board [of natural gas company Burisma] more or less together.”

Twitter disabled the video in Trump’s tweet after Warner Music Group, owner of the record label that released Nickelback’s “Photograph,” sent the social network a DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) takedown notice on Oct. 2 citing copyright infringement.

And of course soon after the entire Tweet was pulled but not before half the world grabbed copies of it and turned the President into a meme (again). What a world we live in today.

In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.
