Eddy Grant sues Trump campaign for using ‘Electric Avenue’

Musician Eddy Grant is suing President Donald Trump’s campaign over the use of his hit song “Electric Avenue” in a video attacking Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

Grant said in a complaint filed Tuesday that Trump and his campaign “have continued to willfully and wrongfully infringe Plaintiffs’ copyrights. As of the date of this filing, the infringing video is still available on Twitter.”

The lawsuit stems from a video tweeted by the President last month that features an animated train with his campaign logo speeding through a town while Biden follows along slowly in a railroad handcar. Grant’s song plays throughout the duration of the video, which as of Tuesday afternoon has more than 13 million views.
