Trump lawsuit claims Woodward audiobook violates copyright

Source: Associated Press

PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) — Former President Donald Trump filed a lawsuit Monday against journalist Bob Woodward, claiming he never had permission to publicly release interview recordings made for the book “Rage.”

The lawsuit was filed in federal court in Pensacola, Florida, against Woodward, his publisher Simon & Schuster Inc., and the publisher’s parent company Paramount Global. Trump’s attorneys are seeking nearly $50 million in damages.

Simon & Schuster and Woodward released a joint response saying Trump’s lawsuit is without merit, and they will aggressively defend against it.

“All these interviews were on the record and recorded with President Trump’s knowledge and agreement,” the statement said. “Moreover, it is in the public interest to have this historical record in Trump’s own words. We are confident that the facts and the law are in our favor.”

This is what happens when you have so much money to file nuisance lawsuits.

1. Since TFG often doesn't pay his lawyers, does he really need that much money

to get them to file these bullshit cases for him? The lawyers apparently do anyhow it for the publicity, but what's that worth if they're risking fines, sanctions and suspension or disbarment - as has been happening lately.

5. Why oh why are they still allowing him and his lawyers file any lawsuit?

Enough, just name him as a vexatsious litigant and be done with it.

6. Sigh, what a pathetic predictable bore

Does he think filing his own lawsuits will make the ones against him go away? Or maybe he thinks he can still control the news cycle.

7. Woodward and his publisher would

not be dumb enough to publish those tapes if there was any legal liability for them in doing so.

I really don't get the point of this lawsuit. He will not win it and I don't see how this suit will get Trump any money. So what's the point of it? What is he hoping to get out of it?

9. He wants to create outrage to rebuild his base.

He relies on anger and outrage to keep his base so he’s going ot portray himself as being unjustly attacked every way he can.

11. This is another TFG frivolous lawsuit

TFG needs to be designated as a vexatious litigant.
