The Trump Tapes: Copyright Infringement

American politician Donald Trump has issued proceedings against authors Bob Woodward and Simon & Schuster for alleged copyright infringement over the publishing of the audiobook ‘The Trump Tapes: The Historical Record’. The audiobook is based upon interviews which were originally recorded for Woodward’s book 2021 book Rage. The claim has been filed in a federal court in Pensacola, Florida. Trump argues the various interview audios were “subject to various limitations on use and distribution – as a matter of copyright, licence, contract, basic principles of the publishing industry and core values of fairness and consent.” Woodward and Simon & Schuster intend to fully defend the claim. It is to be seen in whose favour the court will rule.
