If you're in the mood to watch some Lady Gaga music videos right now, you'll have to search around a bit because the singer's official YouTube account has been suspended. The reason? Multiple or severe violations of the video-sharing site's copyright policy.

There aren't any details about exactly what Lady Gaga did to violate these copyright policies, but Time Out Tokyo suggests that it may be related to footage from a live performance:

She posted footage from her recent appearance on the Fuji TV show SMAP x SMAP. The ten-minute performance featured a medley of songs from her new album, Born This Way, laced with Japan-themed ad libs that we're pretty much certain Shingo Katori didn't understand.

I love this shit.  She doesn't have the rights to post 10 minutes of her own material.   :lulz:

Another possibility is that she was making fun of Betty Ford's hair, while they're in the middle of burying the old bat.

It does call into question, however, if Gaga is indeed the actual copyright holder for her music.

She apparenly owns the music, but not the rights to the live concert footage.

This is just fucking silly.

In her place I'd revoke SMAPXSMAP's rights to use her music.  Although that might involve breaking a contract that's not worth breaking.
You're a special case, Babylon.  You are offensive even when you don't post.

In her place, I'd organize a boycott against them.

Why?

because the smallprint inevitably relocates them to parties that had nothing to do with the production of said IP. But because those magic words are spelled out and signed the artist has no recourse. In retrospect It's more than just IP, it's copyright, it's management, it's the whole fucking industrial approach to art ... yeah, fuckit, just ignore me - on a hobby horse again  :oops:

This is why we have lawyers.  For reading the small print.

I like the Luna one. She is a good one.
