Rebecca Black’s ‘Friday’ Gets Yanked From YouTube
The awesomely bad music video was yanked from YouTube admid a dispute over rights to the song and 13-year-old Black’s image.
In April, Rolling Stone reported that a lawyer for Black and her mother sent Ark a legal letter demanding the master copies of the song and video. The letter further accused the company of exploiting the teen.
Instead of playing for free, the company set it up as a video rental for $2.99.The change apparently angered Black and her team, leading to their request to have the clip removed from the site altogether
