Cantor's clip has been pulled from YouTube after a copyright infringement claim made by Stage Three Music, which owns the rights to "Back in the Saddle."
The GOP's use of the tune "was something we, as the publishers, didn't approve and would not have approved without going to the writers," Connie Ashton, director of copyright and licensing at Stage Three, told me. "Aerosmith did not approve of its use and also wanted to have it taken down," she added.
Ashton added that House Republicans never contacted Stage Three to put in a request for use of "Back in the Saddle." Maybe they assumed it was okay because Joe Perry endorsed McCain last year.
Here is Classy Cantor again... with a new YouTube.. This time touting his holding the team together to vote NO on the Recovery Bill. Of course, if you look at the text that floats across the screen you will see the lie of ACORN, and other things.
All set to the sounds of the rocking beat of Aerosmith. Just take a look at his latest work. He is really proud of it. Comes from his web site and he wants everyone to know how much like Newt Gingrich he would like to be. Which means he and other Republicans are trying to do exactly what they did to former Pres. Clinton by opposing everything he did. He has stated he is in touch with Newt quite often.
So watch and see what you think of Classy Eric's latest contribution to the internets:
