Charlie Crist, David Byrne Settle Campaign Song Lawsuit
|Hopefully this isn't the last time we get to use this picture.|
Anyhow, the terms of the settlement remain private, and Crist was happy with the mediation that occurred. "As I told him, I was sorry it ever happened at all," he said. "He couldn't have been more of a gentleman about it."
As for Byrne, this case wouldn't be complete without another sparkling statement:
"It turns out I am one of the few artists who has the bucks and (guts) to challenge such usage. I'm feeling very manly after my trip to Tampa! Other artists may actually have the anger but not want to take the time and risk the legal bills. I am lucky that I can do that. Anyway, my hope is that by standing up to this practice maybe it can be made to be a less common option, or better yet an option that is never taken in the future."Here is Crist's less-than-manly video apology to Byrne:
