The Tom Petty Estate has issued a stern warning to Arizona GOP candidate Kari Lake for the use of Petty’s song in her campaign:
The Estate writes on Twitter:
The Tom Petty estate and our partners were shocked to find out that Tom’s song “I Won’t Back Down” was stolen and used without permission or a license to promote Kari Lake’s failed campaign.
This is illegal. We are exploring all of our legal options to stop this unauthorized use and to prohibit future misappropriations of Tom’s beloved anthem.
@KariLake Thank you to all of the fans who brought this to our attention and who help us protect his legacy every day.
