Last week, we were devastated to learn that Rebecca Black's Friday video had been taken down from YouTube due to dramz between Team Black and Ark Music Factory (AMF).
Apparently, Ark wanted to make the video a $2.99 rental, but Black was NOT feeling it, so she had the video taken down.
Looks like AMF is NOT happy about all of this, and they're saying that they were blindsided by Black's demand that the video be taken down, without talking it out with them first.
Here's what an Ark rep had to say about it:
"We’re disappointed, having been in good faith negotiations with Rebecca Black and her representatives for months regarding any open issues."
"There’s been an ongoing, open dialogue with our company. So we were blindsided to get a Take Down Notice, with no notice, alleging copyright infringement instead of a call or email from Rebecca’s representatives."
"We are going to continue to take the high road and work out the complaint as soon as possible."
The video is STILL down, so it appears that they haven't worked anything out yet. Ah well…we've still got the video for you HERE!
Who do U side with? Team Black or Team Ark?
