K'naan vs. Mitt Romney
Rapper, activist and Bono pal K’Naan threatened legal action after Mitt Romney used his song “Wavin’ Flag” during his Florida primary victory speech without permission. Romney spokesman Rick Gorka quickly retorted that the song was used through the campaign's regular blanket license, but assured the artist that it won't be used again. In a statement about the incident, K’naan wrote that he would happily grant President Barack Obama's campaign the use of the song.—Jeff Royer
