Henley settlement

DIRTY LAUNDRY: After a federal court ruled the use of their songs in campaign ads didn’t constitute fair-use parody, as had been argued, Don Henley, Mike Campbell and Danny Kortchmar have agreed to settle their damages claims against California politician Chuck DeVore and campaign worker Justin Hart for an undisclosed amount. The lawsuit was filed after DeVore and Hart made videos using Henley and Campbell’s “The Boys of Summer” and Henley’s recording of the Kortchmar-penned “All She Wants to Do Is Dance” as part of the Republican pol’s recent U.S. Senate run. In their statement of apology, DeVore and Hart said in part: “The court’s ruling in this case confirms that political candidates, regardless of affiliation, should seek appropriate license authority before they use copyrighted works. Further, we regret all inaccurate, derogatory or disparaging remarks made about Mr. Henley during the course of this dispute.” (8/5a)
