McCain used Browne’s 1977 hit “Running on Empty” in a commercial shown in Ohio. Browne claims that the use of the sone infringes hiis copyright and will make people conclude thaT he endorses McCain. He is seeking $75,000 on damages.
On a different front, a week ago on Swingtown, Laurie ran away from the cabin so she could hitchhike back to Chicago so whe and Doug could go to a Jackson Browne concert.
All in all, a big week for Jackson Browne. And I am not sure that “Running on Empty” is the best song for a campaign.
