    Default Universal Music Group can kiss my @$$

    Anyone run into this problem before? YouTube has pulled the audio off of one of my videos- my cover of Manic Monday. Well, not YouTube themselves- but Universal Music Group. WTF? Copyright infringement. I put in the video title & the info that the song was by The Bangles... and it's not like I have thousands of subscribers that are watching this bootleg version of a song.

    And it's The Bangles! What- are they planning on some reunion tour- makin a comeback soon?! Sheesh!

    So, in conclusion- screw you, Universal Music Group.

    no way! that's crazy. it's not like you used their actual album track. i can't believe they are going after people singing their song. what a way to insult their fans! tsk tsk...

    Does that mean all of our covers are in danger? I'm not going to start getting threatening calls from Sir Paul am I?

    lmfao! YES! Go, Uki, go! Go forth!- all of you- and do universal covers

    Even though I'm still pissed- you guys have made me feel a lot better about it. Thanks!

    But man- now I'm wondering if any other songs I've done are theirs- and does this mean I have to check everytime I think of a song I wanna play? Not just me- all of us.

    But my biggest question... how the hell did they find me to begin with?!

    I'm gonna be in a record store one day when I'm 75 explaining to my grandchild why I refuse to buy the CD they really want. "**** Universal Music." "Grandma, did you just say ****?!"
