From the Hollywood Reporter in the USA today:

Donald Trump Receives Legal Threat Over Use of Aerosmith’s “Dream On”

Steven Tyler, who was Trump’s guest at the August debate, tells the Republican candidate to cease playing his song at campaign events.

Donald Trump is getting scorned by a musician he seemingly adores.

On Saturday, Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler’s reps sent Donald Trump for President Inc. a demand to stop using the power ballad “Dream On” at campaign events. The cease-and-desist was actually the second time Trump has been warned about using the song. According to the letter obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, Trump was first told to not use “Dream On” after an August 21 event in Mobile, Alabama. Since then, the song has been used including at Trump‘s recent rally in Georgia.

Trump for President does not have our client’s permission to use ‘Dream On’ or any of our client’s other music in connection with the Campaign because it gives the false impression that he is connected with or endorses Mr. Trump’s presidential bid,” states a cease-and-desist letter.

Tyler is now among the growing number of musicians (Jackson Browne, Tom Petty, David Byrne, etc.) who have stood up to Republican politicians over song use, though this time, the demand to stop using “Dream On” might cut a bit deeper for the man currently leading polls. …

However, Trump’s repeated use of “Dream On” and closer association with Tyler over the years could add a wrinkle to any court case. Trump has also been quite aggressive on the trademark front himself. He filed a registration on “Make America Great Again” and his attacks include those selling t-shirts.
