Chuck DeVore moves for summary judgment in Don Henley copyright suit; argues fair use of songs in 'parody' videos

Chuck DeVore, the Republican Senate candidate who used Don Henley's songs "The Boys of Summer" and "All She Wants to do is Dance" in campaign videos intended to promote his campaign against Sen. Barbara Boxer (D), has filed a motion for summary judgment in the copyright and Lanham Act suit brought by Henley. DeVore's primary argument is fair use. I'll have analysis later, but, for now, enjoy:
