Rock band Heart have called in lawyers after US vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin used their track Barracuda at a Republican Party rally.

I thought this part of the article was particularly interesting:

"Under US copyright law, the song is licensed for public performance under a blanket fee paid by the convention's venue.

But one of Barracuda's co-writers, former Heart guitarist Roger Fisher, said he was "thrilled" with the "ingenious placement of a kick-ass song".

However, he later told Reuters that he supported the Democratic ticket and would be donating some of the royalties to Barack Obama's campaign.

"With my contribution to Obama's campaign, the Republicans are now supporting Obama," he said."
