Abstract

Universal Publishing, owners to the copyright of the song, 'We're Not Going To Take It', sued businessman and politician, Clive Palmer, for breach of that copyright. This breach occured during the 2019 Federal election campaign where Palmer had used part of the song in advertisements made for his campaign. It was held that there had been a breach of copyright with the Federal Court not accepting Palmer's parody defence. Damages of $1.5m were awarded.
