Carla Bruni Sues Newspaper Over Audio Clip

French First Lady Carla Bruni is suing the French newspaper Midi Libre for posting an audio clip of her Italian cover of the song Douce France (Sweet France), an air written by and made famous by the singer Charles Trenet during the Second World War. She is alleging the paper engaged in "counterfeiting" by posting the clip without her permission. The song will appear on her next album.
