Teenager Rebecca Black’s song “Friday,” once elected “Worst Song Of The World” by the Times, is now unavailable online due to a copyright claim.
The production company Ark Music Factory pissed off the singer and her parents by deciding to charge $2,99 for each view of the video. Consequently, legal teams of both sides are arguing about who should own the rights for the clip. Initially exceeding 160 million views, profits could be huge.
No matter the outcome, Rebecca Black certainly is a step closer to reaching her goal of becoming famous all around the world. After the unexpected success of her “Friday” video, it seems she’s ready to step up her game as she recently collaborated with Katy Perry on her last clip T.G.I.F.
