Henley Gets Settlement & Apology

Getting a politician to admit being wrong is no small feat.  Don Henley, who won a court case over the unauthorized use of The Boys Of Summer in a video promoting the canididacy of Chuck DeVore of California (story), has settled the case he filed against DeVore and a campaign aid for an undisclosed amount.  Possibly worth more to the Eagles member is the fact he managed to get a public statement issued by DeVore apologizing to him and fellow songwriters Mike Campbell and Danny Kortchmar for violating their copyright that read, in part, '...that political candidates, regardless of affiliation, should seek appropriate license authority before they use copyrighted works', and went on to express regret for '...all inaccurate, derogatory or disparaging remarks made about Mr. Henley during the course of this dispute.'
