'Lo, all.

I'm Kyr and I'm new to the community. However, I've been on eljay for over a year and a U2 fan for nearly five. The brevity isn't my fault, I was born too late. Some of you might recognise me from the old Zootopia. I was one of the merry band of Bonoists and a ficcie too :-)

But to business!

Did I see/hear something over this weekend about John Kerry using U2's music without permission and something about a royalties argument? I only saw the story briefly (in the Irish Sunday Tribune in case any of you have it) but that was the gist I think. Can anyone shed more light?

I know I heard Beautiful Day last Thursday after Kerry acceppted the Democratic nomination. I don't know if there was a copyright issue because of it though...

Wow! I saw this post right after I read the article on @U2! Weird.

I dont remember exactly what it said, just that John didn't have permission for the song but he was asking for it, the fax is just still pending. I hope they give the go-ahead!
