    Apparently, this story has been kicking around a few months. I didn't know about it until I saw Jackson on Colbert tonight...

    boo-hoo

    A campaign is considered not-for-profit so it isn't covered.

    I am sure it will really hurt McCain's bank account! You can't use what you don't have the right to use! I think it is hilarious! Who is running is campaign? Apes!

    This won't fly. McCain does not stand to make money off this song. No profit equals no damages. Therefore case dismissed.

    One of the myths associated with nonprofit D&O exposures is that there are few sources of claims since nonprofits don't have shareholders. While it is true that the vast majority of lawsuits filed against nonprofit boards are filed by current and former employees (alleging wrongful employment practices), nonprofits serve large and varied constituencies to which their boards owe specific fiduciary duties similar to duties owed by corporate boards. These constituencies are potential plaintiffs in legal actions brought against nonprofit boards. Potential claimants in a suit against nonprofit directors include:

    Insiders — The current and former staff of a nonprofit may bring actions alleging a host of wrongful acts, including wrongful termination, discrimination, sexual harassment, and Americans with Disabilities Act violations.
    Outsiders — Third parties that have a relationship with the nonprofit may allege harm caused by the nonprofit and/or its directors, officers or employees. Outside sources can be vendors, funders, or another nonprofit.

    I don't see where Jackson Browne fits into any of those catagories.
