A judge in Rio ruled on Friday, the 16th, that Federal Deputy Eduardo Bolsonaro (PL-SP) immediately remove the song “Roda Viva” by Chico Buárque from a post he made on social networks. Failure to comply with the ruling will result in a fine of R$1,000 per day.
a The case sparked controversy late last month, when substitute judge Monica Ribeiro Teixeira denied the same request made by the musician’s defense. According to her, there was no proof that “Roda Viva” was written by Chico Buarque.
This Thursday, the 15th, lawyer Joao Tancredo filed a new case. Judge Fernando Rocha Lovesi gave a different decision this time. According to Tancredo, the legal piece filed is now identical to the earlier piece. Asked what would have changed, the lawyer said: “Those analyzing the case have knowledge of Brazilian popular music.”
“Anyway, we’ve come out of the unnecessary controversy over the song’s authorship,” Tancredo said. “We can now focus on the main objective of the operation, which is to treat Shekou’s work with respect and the strictness of the law, including the violation of the deputy. In fact, the same focus should resume in many regions of the country.”
In addition to urgently requesting that the song be removed from the post, the action also accuses the federal prosecutor of paying R$48,000 in damages and publishing the guilty verdict on the same social network in which the work was improperly used. . Eduardo Bolsonaro used Chico Buarque’s music in a post about alleged political arrests of supporters of his father, President Jair Bolsonaro.
