Trump ignores cease-and-desist letter from rock legend, continues using song at rallies

Once again, another Republican stealing from an artist with no far. On Saturday, Steven Tyler of the band Aerosmith sent Donald Trump a cease-and-desist letter over the Republican presidential candidates usage of the classic song "Dream On".
The letter says that Trump does "not have our client's permission to use 'Dream On'" or any of Tyler's other songs and that it "gives the false impression that he is connected with or endorses Mr. Trump's presidential bid."
Days later, Donald Trump is still very publicly and defiantly using the song:
However, only two days later, a defiant Trump walked onto the stage to "Dream On" at the "No Labels Problem Solver Convention" in Manchester, New Hampshire.
The Donald tells CNN it's all good:
The Trump campaign did not respond to CNN request for comment, but said the issue was resolved Monday morning.
"Actually that's all worked out," Trump said just minutes before walking out to his speech to the No Labels conference in New Hampshire. The real estate mogul did not elaborate.
Steven Tyler is a registered Republican, but insists his cease-and-desist letter isn't political:
Attorney Dina LaPolt said in a statement that the letter is not a "political" or "personal issue with Mr. Trump," but it's one of permission and copyright.
he said he could shoot someone in the middle of times square and loose no votes looks like he can be guilty of copyright infringement and still not lose any just what we need a real lawless president not homemade myth of one he's right up their alley liar, lawbreaker, misogynist, racist, bigot, and just chock hull of White privilege. 

what needs to happen all who have legit grievances against him ought to file suit 2 weeks before geneneral election if he wins his primary let him stew in that kettle of fish.
