It's on again! Trump: You're not legal, Twitter: I'm not illegal
Twitter is "on the bar" with Trump again! On June 3rd US President Donald Trump's campaign released a new promotional video in which it made a strong appeal for social solidarity as it pays tribute to Floyd, an African-American victim of violent law enforcement. Embarrassingly, the rare "positive energy" ad was removed from Twitter the day after it was released because of copyright issues. In response, Mr. Trump hit back on The 5th, describing the tweet as "an effort to fight for radical left-wing Democrats" and calling it "one-on-one" and "unlawful." Later, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey responded, calling Trump's allegations "unreal" and "not illegal."
According to the U.S. Capitol Hill Reported on the 5th,The Trump campaign released a four-minute public service ad titled "Healing, Don't Hate" on several online platforms On March 3.The video, which is based on a speech Trump has released in recent days, criticizes the recent social chaos created by the so-called "far-left" and warns of violence and an anachism. Finally, the ad releases a message of "support for the police", emphasizing that the vast majority of law enforcement officials in the United States are "responsible civil servants".
The video, originally posted by the Trump campaign account @TeamTrump, was retweeted nearly 7,000 times in a short time, including by Trump himself and his son Donald Jr. But I didn't expect it.The video was removed from Twitter only the day after it was released, with Twitter saying it had received a complaint from a copyright holderThe latter accused at least one of the images in the video of alleged infringement, though Twitter did not specify which one. The Capitol Hill Newspaper said that after a third-party legal platform verified that the video content did violate the existing copyright laws in the United States, the complainant's actions are legitimate rights protection.
On June 5, local time, Mr. Trump tweeted a "fightback." He retweeted a report that "Twitter removed' a campaign video of Trump showing his affectment with peaceful protesters" and wrote: "They are fighting for radical left-wing Democrats." AndIt's a one-way street fight. It's not legal!At the end of the tweet, Trump also referred to Section 230 of the Communications Act (CDA). I don't know

Under this provision, no Internet service provider shall be deemed to be the publisher of information provided by other information content providers. By applying Section 230 of the Act, the United States essentially exempts Internet service providers from tort liability for statements made by their users online.
Later, Jack Dorsey retweeted Trump's tweet on Twitter and responded. He wrote, "(The allegations) are not true, and (Twitter removed the video) is not illegal.This is because we have received a DMCA (Us Millennium Digital Copyright Act) complaint from the copyright owner. "
The Trump campaign has previously responded vehemently to the incident, accusing Twitter founder Jack Dorsey of deliberately restricting the president's messages. Clark, a spokesman for the team, said Twitter had done a series of "questionable" and "volatile" actions that were biased "only at Trump's campaign." He added that the platform removed important information from Mr. Trump's protests, indicating an "escalation of the company's dual-standard operations." The team also called on the president's supporters to watch it on other online platforms - the ad is still available on Facebook, YouTube and Instagram.
In fact, this isn't the first time Trump has been "deleted" from Twitter over copyright issues. In 2019, Mr. Trump was complained about inappropriate use of film and television soundtracks and pop music, respectively, by Warner Bros. Entertainment and Canada's "Five Points Band," and Twitter deleted the post. As the election approaches, the battle between the two parties for online public opinion is intensifying, and friction between Mr. Trump and Twitter is escalating. In late May, after two tweets were "marked," Mr. Trump signed an executive order directly calling on social media platforms to take legal responsibility for "speech censorship."
