On Thursday June 16, 2011 Rebecca Black's infamous "Friday" music video was removed from Youtube "due to a copyright claim by Rebecca Black." It turns out Black and her team are battling Ark Music Factory over the rights to the song, which became a Youtube sensation when it garnered 160 million views. Ark began charging $2.99 per view of the clip, prompting Black and her lawyer to issue a takedown notice to Youtube and get litigious. Black's parents originally paid Ark $4,000 to produce the song and video for their 13 year-old daughter. On Friday June 17, the music video briefly reappeared online through Vevo as a director's cut. Or so it seemed. Black did not have an official Vevo channel, according to her rep, and that video was also taken down... leaving the Internet — at least for now — without one of its favorite targets of ridicule. ?
