Kerry's Gaffe Over U2 Song


U.S. presidential hopeful John Kerry has used the U2 song "Beautiful
Day"
as his campaign theme song without the band's permission, it has been
revealed. The Democrat senator has played the hit for the past seven
months but never got clearance from U2's record company. Mr. Kerry's
lawyers contacted U2's Dublin office on Thursday in a bid to get
permission from the band.

The oversight could be a huge embarrassment to the candidate if the
band do not give the go-ahead.

It has also emerged that a last-minute bid to get clearance for the
song was made at the Democratic convention last week.

The request was faxed just hours before Kerry took the stage at his
party's convention in Boston.

Does anybody have the source of this info? I'm still confused. From everything I've researched and heard regarding copyright laws permission wouldn't need to be granted for piping a song through a PA. I don't know, I'm at a loss.
